Self Introduction

Space commander and spacecadet. Stargazer and fire starter. Actually a rocket scientist. Loyal friend. Curious explorer. Highbrow and lowbrow wanderer.

My dad is a doctor and my mom is an artist, so I have both brains always on. Life is a walking meditation.

Always doing something for the greater good. Currently a PhD Candidate in Astronautical Engineering at USC and a Graduate Research Assistant at Los Alamos National Laboratory. I also serve as the Mission Support GreenHab Coordinator for the Mars Desert Research Station.


Astrophotography, hiking (NOLS Alaska graduate; completed the John Muir Trail), aviation, bicycling, snowboarding, science writing, art collecting, world travel.
