Hello! Thanks for stopping by. I first became interested in space exploration after watching the movie Apollo 13 in 1996. Now I’m lucky enough to write about it for a living.
Fun things I’ve done: Pretending to be on Mars for two weeks in the Utah desert. Covering three space shuttle missions from Florida. Interviewing astronauts while they were in space. Meeting all the Star Trek captains.
I’m a senior writer at Universe Today and regular contributor to Space.com, Space Exploration Network, NASA Astrobiology Magazine and LiveScience. I’ve also contributed to Canadian Geographic, the Canadian Broadcasting Corp. and many other publications as a journalist and commentator.
I also teach business journalism at Algonquin College and am slowly pursuing a Ph.D. in aerospace sciences at the University of North Dakota. In my spare time, I sometimes blog (scroll to see my latest posts below.)
