The coast of my native Georgia has always exerted a strong emotional influence in my life and work, starting with childhood summers on the marsh at my grandparents' home in Savannah. In the summer of my nineteenth year, I worked as a research assistant at the University of Georgia Marine Institute on Sapelo Island. I spent many hours alone on the mud flats at low tide, followed by many hours of free time fishing and painting. It was my first interaction with research science and where I realized the joy of discovery while being alone.
