    CV link is super helpful. Thanks!

    And is the large DNA portrait hanging in the living room the modern version of keeping an urn of a loved one’s ashes on the hearth? That’s a bit…creepy. (And also kind of awesome.) But a little narcissistic, if it’s one’s own DNA, yeah? Like having a self-portrait in your living room. Whatever blows your skirt up.
