What is your favorite and least favorite thing about your career?

My least favorite thing is the cold water in Japan and Argentina. Sounds corny I know, but I am a cold water wimp! I routinely wear two wet suits when I work in those areas gathering data. My most favorite part may be surprising to many people – I love the data analysis part of my work. Yes, swimming among the dolphins is cool too. However, I love reviewing the video tapes and analyzing the sounds because this is when the patterns become evident. For every hour of data I gather, there are at least 20 hours of analysis time! It is good I love that part of it!
