My name is Bryan Perkins and I am here to recruit you.

On August 12, 1986 I was born into an Air Force family living in Las Vegas, Nevada. Since then I have lived in Nevada, Arizona, California, Germany, Colorado, and Louisiana. In December of 2008 I graduated from Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge with a Bachelor’s Degree in Biology. I would love nothing more than to finally put my degree to proper use and go to graduate school for ecology and evolution, but it is proving to be a much more costly and difficult process than I ever imagined.

When I first thought about creating my own science blog I had no idea what to expect, but I jumped right in nonetheless. After devouring every science blog post that I could stomach (especially those by Bora, Greg, and others) I decided there was no better way to learn what science blogging really entailed than by experiencing it for myself. That is when I created Science. Why not? (for the first time) on December 24, 2008.
