My name is for a few of reasons....

1.) I love hedgehogs - cute, cute, cute!! They're shy and sweet and non-aggressive yet prickly when need be

2.) They remind me of the years i lived in England when studying for my PhD (and for which i PINE daily as i try and get a job back "home" in the UK)

3.) I'm a molecular geneticist and i work on a specific class of genes (found in most animals) called "hedgehog" genes.

geeky, but true.
