I am an entrepreneur, a systems engineer, pilot, leader, and innovator who has spent over 15 years developing, designing, and leading within space science, aerospace systems engineering, remote sensing and laser systems, detector instrumentation, network and feedback control and telemetry, and software engineering. For eight years I served as an operations leader for three internationally recognized particle accelerator programs: PEP-II, LCLS, and FACET at the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory, Stanford University. I am also the Founder of Corvix Space Systems, a Silicon Valley aerospace company. I am also the CEO and Founder of Corvectra, Inc. a Denver-based biosensor and medical company born in Silicon Valley. At Corvectra, I lead a team to develop disruptive sensing technologies that will change the way human beings explore and connect to their health and each other.

I love learning and I have a passion for sharing knowledge, so STEM education and public science outreach are vitally important to me. If you are a fellow entrepreneur, a leader, an educator, innovator, or even space enthusiast, let's connect.
