“We really don’t have a choice; we just have to be good to one another.”

I have always had a thirst for knowledge and adventure. My career in science and academia has taken me to all seven continents, from uncovering the geological history of Antarctica to consulting with USAID in Africa, but Los Angeles will always be home. It’s where I met and fell in love with Celeste. And it’s why my legacy will support education and foster greater understanding amongst Los Angeles’ diverse communities.
