Space expert, engineer, husband, father, all around geek.
I'm a lifelong geek with a fascination for everything from history to computers to the outdoors to military strategy. I grew up in upstate New York and as a kid I played American football and lacrosse and was an Eagle Scout.  

I attended college on a US Air Force ROTC scholarship and studied electrical engineering.  After graduation I went into the US Air Force as an officer.  I spent the next 9 years working various jobs in space and missile operations, including 275 nuclear alerts in Montana and time spent tracking satellites in Cheyenne Mountain in Colorado.

In 2007 I married my wife, an officer in the Canadian military, and l left the Air Force to pursue her military career.  I joined Secure World Foundation, where I work on space security issues and in particular space policy.

In addition to working at SWF, I'm also currently pursuing a PhD in Public Policy and Public Administration at George Washington University. 

My wife and I have two young children, a boy and a girl ages 3.5 and 2, who keep us pretty busy.  We love food, wine, travel, and technology.
