I did the best I could to make my daydreams happen…

“It is extraordinarily difficult, even in academia, to find a job that will let you do whatever you want with your time. If you are determined to spend your time following your own interests, you pretty much have to do it on your own. After my Ph.D., there just weren’t any positions open to support the research I wanted to do. And, of course, the surfing and windsurfing in Maui is amazingly good. I did the best I could to make my daydreams happen – and that didn’t put me in an office”.

Garret Lisi, surfer and indie physics researcher (Wired Magazine, 2008).
