People Who Inspire Me

Richard Dawkins

The Archbishop of Atheism who popularized the gene-centered view of evolution. Unapologetically controversial, don’t be a sheep. Religion: together we can find a cure.

Richard Feynman

Unconventional theoretical physicist with wit, wisdom, and humility, who should have lived longer. It’s okay to say, ‘I don’t know’ – the pleasure of finding things out.

Rafa Nadal

Everything an athlete should be, on and off of the court. Looks really fabulous in pink.

Alan Turing

Father of programming who broke the Enigma code with Welchman and effectively ended WWII, who was then chemically castrated for being gay, kept contributing scientific theories to the world, and committed suicide at 41.

Sherlock Holmes

“When you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth.” – A. Conan Doyle

Alan Menken

Musical composition genius – responsible for almost every fabulous Disney classic. Broadway, too. (And John Williams for composing the Jurassic Park theme).

Kimmy Schmidt

A never flagging, endearing, curious, and undying spirit.

Nassim Nicholas Taleb

Writer/statistician who teaches us a more productive way to look at life. Probability, probability, probability! (Keenly following his feud with Dawkins)
