Bio

Name: Dana
Born: 3/12/79, New York

I am an arts, culture, literature, technology, science and media geek. Equally right and left-brained, obsessed with the influx of information, on a perpetual quest for that which stirs, intrigues, confuses and delights the senses. A compulsive crafter and incurable bibliophile, forever exploring, investigating, creating and collecting. My greatest joy lies in the extreme beauty of the mundane, life’s countless absurdities and the seamless fusion of darkness and light.

Despite my undergraduate English major and work in the publishing industry, I’m now embarking on a grad school journey toward a PhD in Clinical Psychophysiology. Years ago I fell in love with integrative medicine, and eagerly await the chance to become an architect of healing; discovering the infinite possibilities on the fine line where science and spirit connect.

Here’s hoping this little kaleidoscope of my endless passions may somehow enrich the lives of others!

  6. Good to see that both your interest and your brain are bisymmetrically apportioned (balanced). I thought you might appreciate a bit of geek speak. Great blog!

  7. Hello Dana, I wanted to comment on your introduction. Your choice of adjectives and word structure so eloquently expresses who you are, that the beauty of the picture your paragraph left in my mind, just barely surpasses the beauty of yourself. Thank you for sharing your life’s passion.

I like how you explore the links between the different facets of our lives; especially the role of art. There are so many goodies to find here – I’ll certainly be back for more. Splendid.

    Thanks, all!

  44. Hi Dana, I just wanted to thank you. In this blog you’ve been collecting rappresentations and sensations I’ve always looked for. I work as a neuroradiologist which means that I write death sentences for a living, and it happens almost everyday, so I shelter myself in art to exsorcise my fears, to becalm my disquietude, and I find it a good trait d’union between wonder (neuroscience) and uneasiness (inspiration [art]).

  45. I’ve read several just right stuff here. Certainly worth bookmarking for revisiting.

    I wonder how a lot attempt you set to create this sort of wonderful informative website.

  46. Lisa Siwanowicz Says:

    please respond to me personally ~ it’s very important. Thanx. LS

  47. I can already tell I am going to love this blog. You have a gorgeous collection of interesting things to share. And your writing is lovely.

  48. Thanks for finally talking about >Bio | SheWalksSoftly <Loved it!
