Space is a fascinating field to work in because you test everything — engineering, computers, even the human body. I write about how space exploration affects astronauts, and how space technology affects the billions of us on Earth who depend on it.

Recently, I journeyed to Kazakhstan to report on an International Space Station launch. Other fun things I’ve done include documenting my mission on a “Mars” base for two weeks, attending three space shuttle launches (like this one), and talking to astronauts about how to prepare for spaceflight. And every day, I chase breaking news to help my clients explain and understand the latest in space exploration.

I am fluent in English, and am comfortable in three other languages that I have used for multilingual press conferences: French, Spanish and Russian.

Here are some of the stories I’ve written.

For Space.com, I break down the scientific concepts portrayed in popular TV shows and movies, such as “Star Trek”, “Star Wars” and “Lost In Space”.

I also cover breaking news events for Space.com, sometimes posting stories within hours of an official announcement. I’ve also had exclusives, such as this interview with Apollo astronaut Charles Duke.

For LiveScience, I answer common questions about space.

For Seeker.com, I report on how spaceflight affects astronaut health.

For Curiosity.com, I explain space news to a non-technical, young adult audience.

For Sky&Telescope, I delve deeply into the science of astronomy.

For Smithsonian Air&Space Magazine, I write about under-reported and breakthrough space research.

For NASA Astrobiology Magazine, I report on the scientific investigation of possibly habitable worlds outside of Earth.

For SpaceQ, I investigate the Canadian space program and industry.

 

Let’s work together
