I'm a software engineer, amateur astronomer, and contributor on space topics for WRAL-TV in Raleigh, NC.

I volunteer with the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory's Solar System Ambassador program supporting E/PO in central North Carolina and beyond. This takes me to schools, museums, & anywhere else I can get people, especially kids, excited about the night sky and continuing our exploration of space. I also help out with the NASA Langley Research Center Speakers Bureau on similar topics as well.
