Story

To infinity and beyond! Working to build the Hackerspace Space Program
Introduction
I'm the Global Projects Lead for SpaceGAMBIT, a government-funded, open-source, hackerspace space program. I'm constantly on the road hunting for cool projects for us to fund, as well as getting out the word about what we (and our partners) do.

I live out of one small-ish backpack and am all about travelling light. This somewhat clashes with trying to look classy, and this is the central, overarching conflict in my life. Just kidding. Maybe second or third biggest.

I studied Chinese at university, danced terrible drag ballet on reality TV, got stranded for 6 months in the Gobi Desert and smashed up my knee in a lightsaber duel. My favorite drink is coffee.

I'm into making (though I rarely get time), space, learning, and travelling. And getting my US/UK spellings confused.
