Having wandered into professional writing and editing after a decade in engineering, science, and management, I now enjoy reintegrating the dichotomy by bringing space technology and policy within reach of an interested public. After three years as Space Safety Magazine's deputy and then managing editor, I'm now an occasional contributor while I keep my pencil sharp as Proposal & Publication Manager for NASA/NOAA contractor INNOVIM. In my spare time, you’ll find me advocating for greater appreciation of the International Space Station, supporting International Space University projects, and every so often, reading a book.
