March for Science: Science About Politics

mark_microscope_edit_002The March for Science will take place April 22, 2017 in Washington, D.C., St. Paul, MN, and elsewhere. This march is not for just Democrats or Republicans. Instead, it is a non-political march designed to highlight the importance of science and of decisions based on sound science.

I march because I support science:

  • Photographs (and the selfie) define us and who we are.
  • Cell phones and digital cameras capture memories as they happen.
  • Without photography, we would be left with only a few very expensive paintings.
  • Dyes, pigments, and other materials last for generations.
  • Printing allows the rapid dissemination of ideas.
  • Driver’s licences, IDs, and passports establish identity.
  • Medical imaging saves lives.

mark_pen-tester_editI have worked in medical imaging, consumer photography, and security printing. In these fields, different technologies come together to create products that would be impossible without science.

I march because I support science, and science supports me.

At Creative Memories, I evaluate photographic products and related materials so that today's memories are not lost to the future and then communicate this information to Creative Memories Consultants and their customers. My interests extend from preservation of traditional photographs to the production of photo books to the expected longevity of electronic image files. My long-term objective is to direct the development of technology that meets consumers needs for high-quality products.
