Scientist/Author in Huntsville, Alabama
Little known fact: we published the spiders on drugs work at NASA in the 90s.
I like to disrupt and innovate. I love all things creative: sales, marketing, multimedia production, academic research and cooking. I like to break things and make them better.
I studied chemistry and worked for 15 years as a Material Scientist at NASA in microgravity, biophysics, and physical & analytical chemistry. I love commercial space and co-founded Zero-G with Peter Diamandis and Byron Lichtenberg.
My passion for metabolism, mild cold stress, dietary restriction, and nutrition research is alive through contributions to hypothermics.com. This work has been featured in Wired Magazine, TEDMED 2010, ABC Nightline, The Atlantic, The Daily Beast, and 4-Hour Body. I helped Penn Jillette lose 100 lbs as detailed in his book, Presto, co-authored Plant-Based Nutrition (Idiot's Guide Series) in 2018 and,The Healthspan Solution in 2019 withJulieanna Hever. I also co-host the Science and Saucery podcast.
