A childhood dream of mine was to meet Paul Sereno, one of my favourite palaeontologists. Earlier this year, when #ultimatedinos was being built, I got up close to Paul Sereno’s Carchardontosaurus, and did my best to recreate this famous photo. And that, I thought, would be as close as I would ever get to this legend.
This week, I got a little closer.
Love my job. Love what we offer. So glad to be a part of this.
NOTE: Leading up to Sereno’s meet & greet and lecture, I worked the lines speaking to parents, kids, dino nerds. It was wonderful meeting so many excited and enthusiastic people.
I’ll always remember one comment in particular though from a mom, “My son’s here to meet his dino hero. I’m here to meet one attractive man!”. And indeed. Paul Sereno doesn’t look like he’s aged a day since his placing in the top 50 most beautiful people list in 1997!
