Introduction

I am a freelance space writer with a life-long passion for space exploration and astronomy. I started my blog The Meridiani Journal in 2005, which is a chronicle of planetary exploration. In 2011, I started writing about space on a freelance basis, and now also currently write for The Spaceflight GroupAmericaSpace and Examiner.com. I have also written for Universe Today, have been published in The Mars Quarterly and have done supplementary writing for the well-known iOS app Exoplanet for iPhone and iPad.

You can also find me on TwitterFacebookGoogle+TumblrLinkedInPinterestFlickrInstagram and YouTube.
