Originally from Reading, Pa, I had an early interest in the sciences, and like most science minded folks going into college, I wanted to be a medical doctor.  After 3 years of working on unnatural amino acid incorporation into proteins at Franklin & Marshall College, I quickly realized that medicine wasn’t for me, and decided to attend graduate school for chemistry at the University of Pennsylvania.  While working under Dr. Barry Cooperman, I helped determine the kinetics of tRNA release from bacterial ribosomes during protein synthesis.  After a short stint in the biotech sector making fluorescently labeled tRNAs, and an even shorter stint at SPI Pharma in Lewes, De, I managed to find my dream job as the “Off-centered Analytical Chemist” at Dogfish Head Craft Brewery where I’ve been for about 3 years.
