It’s Okay To Be Smart is a blog and a YouTube show about science. But it’s probably not about science the way you’re used to it.
I have a Ph.D in biology, and my mission in life is to tell the world about the awesomeness of ALL THE SCIENCE. I curate and publish everything you see here. We live in the future, and that future is one in which science impacts every part of our lives. But too many people aren’t taking part in that future. Too many aren’t taking part in science. We must teach science as more than facts. It’s a creative process, it’s an instant injection of wonderment, it’s the excitement we feel at the edge of knowledge. It’s for everyone.
Science is awesome, and there’s so much of it to explore. Let me be your guide. Remember, It’s Okay To Be Smart. If you’d like to get an idea why I love to talk about science, check out this post.
If you’d like to work together, hire me, show me something interesting, put me on television, hear me on the radio, feature me in a film, send me free booze, or exchange otherwise interesting information, feel free to contact me here (or email itsokaytobesmart at gmail.com) or follow me on Twitter.
I live in Austin, TX, I have two adorable dogs and one amazingly beautiful and wonderful wife, without whom this wouldn’t be possible.
