I'm an information security engineer, amateur astronomer, and contributor on space topics for WRAL-TV in Raleigh, NC and the WeatherBrains podcast. You can also find my spacey ramblings on the Alabama Weather Blog.

I volunteer with the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory's Solar System Ambassador program supporting E/PO in central North Carolina, Virginia and beyond. This takes me to schools, museums, planetaria & 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 these topics as well.
