Jon Gold: AN OVERVIEW
The Big City
...or the little city or a vineyard. I feel at home and simultaneously a complete stranger anywhere on the planet -- and so often I depend on the kindness of strangers to be able to do the things I do.... I make music but also derive enormous pleasure from teaching wonderfully diverse people about thermodynamics and quantum mechanics and Numberwang at a small college in Northeastern PA (about an hour from NYC). My students are formidable and teach me so much. I also do research in cardiology with physician colleagues at the University of Pennsylvania's Perelman Center for Advanced Research in Medicine -- specifically we are studying the use of cardiac proteins for the diagnosis of rare cardiac auto-immune diseases. If this works out, it could possibly save some lives. Hi ho!....Oh and I like wine, a lot....
