Role Model Alert: Jean Pigozzi

M. Pigozzi is not a scientist or a conservationist, but he is the very definition of bon vivant and I want to be just like him. He holds the world's largest collection of African art and he set up a research station and laboratory in Panama called the "Liquid Jungle Lab" in collaboration with the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute,(STRI) Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) the Royal Botanical Garden of Madrid and the Autoridad Nacional del Ambiente., so he isn't toally off topic. Below is a great interview with him from charlie rose. - MA

"Part 21st Century renaissance man, part contemporary cave man"
