Expanding Human Understanding of the Universe
Introduction
I was born in New York City and grew up in Ft. Myers, FL. I have dedicated myself to a lifetime of learning. Along the way I have studied aerospace engineering, physics, astronomy, and educational psychology. I have also enjoyed painting and sailing. My ultimate goal is to add a piece to the puzzle that is human understanding of the universe.
