I am a husband, father, and ontologist. But more importantly for Mars One, I am a child of the Space Age. I absorbed the optimism and can-do spirit of that time, as well as a trust in science and technology to make our world and our lives better. I have always believed that humankind’s destiny included living beyond this planet, and I am thrilled and honored by Mars One giving me a chance to be part of that.
