I am a husband, father and computer professional. But more importantly for Mars One, I am a child of the Space Age. My first library book in kindergarten was about the astronauts. (I was saddened to learn we had not already visited Venus, Mars and Jupiter.) Still, I absorbed the optimism and can-do spirit of the time, as well as a trust in science and technology to make our world better. I have always believed that humankind’s destiny lay beyond this planet, and I want to be part of that.
