About

About Me

When you were younger, did your school ever have that one kid that was fanatically into space? That was me. Space is what drives me: I own every Carl Sagan book ever published, I collect vintage space art, and I have written a science fiction book of my own with more planned for the future. I believe that the spirit of discovery is encoded into our DNA, and exploring space helps us to satisfy the timeless, primeval question: could we ever get as high up as the stars?

 

To that end, I've studied hard to work in all angles of the space exploration field. I am a creative problem-solver, a confident communicator, and a competent engineer. I pride myself on my ability to perform in both STEM and creative settings, which I find crossing over more often than they seem. Even beyond engineering, I enjoy arts like writing, visual art, and graphic design. I also love meeting other people who have the same passion as I do, so I'm a great addition to any space-related team. NASA thought so!
