E Jo's Profile

A word about E Jo:

I'm an avid ocean swimmer. I swim with sharks and rays in La Jolla (it keeps the ticker tickin'). I'm addicted to brussel sprouts and Stephen Colbert. I have a passion for traveling without plans. I have a B.S. in molecular biology but somehow find myself working in random bio fields. I've worked with lizards, snakes and scorpions at CNM and wrangled caterpillars on Mauna Kea volcano in Hawaii for the Palila Restoration Project. I currently work with CA Spiny Lobster. I finally live and work on the beach but 9 to 5 will always make me feel like a caged tigress. I lived and worked in Mexico last summer. Brought home a little slice of Mexico and reluctantly hosted a party for a million little amigos. I also have a B.A. in art history/black and white artistic photography. I want to save the environment but feel I need to take a nap first. I'm a loner with a lot of friends. I'm a responsible slacker. I have two degrees and feel I know nothing...
