      I’m the only scientist in my immediate family (although one of my uncles is a computer scientist, so at least it’s part of his title).

      In my family, my dad is a retired restaurateur and chef, my mother is a customer service supervisor for Delta (the person that helps you with your tickets for your flight), my oldest brother owns his own stage-managing company (manages venues and tours for bands, plays, etc.), my other older brother scouts baseball players, my younger sister is an artist (mainly silversmithing and glass-blowing), and my youngest brother is an award-winning mixologist, who makes craft mescal (he learned how to make this tequila-like liquor in Oaxaca, Mexico) and invents Prohibition-era cocktails and other drinks.

      I might actually be the boring one.
