I write about the Universe.
I'm an astronomer, blogger, father, dork, husband, author, biped, late adopter, public speaker, skeptic, punster, and science evangelizer. I'm a big fan of Doctor Who, Star Trek, and Stargate.
I suppose I could've just said "I'm a geek" and been done with it.
I write the Bad Astronomy Blog for Discover Magazine, and have two books: "Bad Astronomy", and "Death from the Skies!". I also hosted the three part mini-series documentary "Bad Universe" on Discovery channel, and I've done a bunch of talking head stints on various science documentaries like "How the Universe Works", "Engineering the Universe", and others.
In short: I love thinking about astronomy, I love talking about astronomy, I love writing about astronomy, and I love doing astronomy.
I used to be taller.
