I've loved space and spaceflight since I was six years old. And I was certain I was going to be an astronaut. Then I became obsessed with the rockets themselves and what makes them fly, and so I revised my dream job to aerospace engineer. Then came what they call the "writing bug", and it was all over.

This podcast is my attempt to take part in, and hopefully contribute to a community that, despite my wayward nature, I've never fully left.

Having grown up at Edwards AFB, I've always been fascinated with human spaceflight. I remember hearing a double boom, then driving out to the dry lakebed with my parents to watch the Shuttle land. I'm thrilled to live in an age where I don't have to work in the industry to have a wealth of information at my fingertips.

I live in Chico, CA and study crash safety equipment in passenger vehicles. I spend my free time playing games like KSP and Rimworld, as well as 3D printing and woodworking projects.
