For me, John Inglis is the perfect incarnation of the British gentleman (well, Scotsman really). He is relaxed, knows how to puts people at their ease and exudes good manners and class.
He is a man of many talents: a scientist and writer, he now runs the publishing house of the Cold Harbor Laboratory and possesses a real competence to explain science in a way that even a layman can understand.
In addition to that, he also wields black humor with expertise and plays the piano very well. He was the first to support and advise me on this project.

If Jonathan Ipsaro, whom everyone calls “Jon”, had not become a scientist, I think he could have been an artist. Musician, singer, actor, and above all dancer, he is gifted for almost everything. Very well connected in the artistic milieu, he has introduced me to a number of friends that you might see on a Broadway stage or in some famous TV shows. He also possesses a disconcerting facility for languages. He speaks Spanish splendidly, and French too, not with the same ease but well enough to follow a conversation, ask for his way and read an explanatory leaflet. He also took an interest in Chinese, and I am certain he has not told me everything about his talents in this domain. On top of all that, he loves the handicrafts, cooking and travelling for the joy of discovering places and meeting people.
When we talked about his participation in this project, we didn’t have to go very far to find an idea. Jon teaches swing dance. There was no need to search further.
