What "trip and traveling" means to me? travel to a exotic place and catch a big fish? travel to a remote region and catch a lot of fish? if you know me and you know my answer... neither a big fish hunter, nor a solitude seeker am I... quiet opposite, I am a guy that seeking the experience of friendship bond and local life. I can be careless about the 5 star hotel SPA and fancy sailing boat, but I can not give up any chance to walk a dog and visiting the local fishing shop. Better yet, the owner in the fishing shop know that I was the guy had visited his shop 3 years ago. What a sweet memory! : )

I am a biologist grew up with a fishing rod in my hands. I have been fortunate enough to embrace my love of art and science in my career. Most of my free time were well spent in the nature, either studying bird behavior or chasing variety of fish with fly rods. My favorite art medium is watercolors, I love the natural and spontaneous feel created by watercolor pigments. I am currently a post-doctoral research fellow at Harvard University. Welcome to my website. Mark
