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 recently founded a blog about human spaceflight, Spaceshippers. And I freelance about space and science for my day job. I’m a senior writer at Universe Today and regular contributor to Space.com, Space Exploration Network, the NASA Lunar Science Institute, NASA Astrobiology Magazine and LiveScience.
I also am slowly pursuing a Ph.D. in aerospace sciences at the University of North Dakota.
