I am a Lead Analyst at the Southwest Research Institute in Boulder, Colorado, where I plan and execute stellar occultation campaigns for NASA's Lucy and New Horizons missions, develop science sequences for Lucy, and analyze data for New Horizons and Rosetta. I have also studied the tenuous gas surrounding galaxies at the Center for Astrophysics and Space Astronomy using the Hubble Space Telescope's Cosmic Origins Spectrograph.
I live with my wife and daughter in Longmont, CO. We enjoy traveling the world and exploring the Colorado mountains. I have two younger brothers, was raised in Ohio and Virginia, and attended the University of Virginia and the University of Colorado. I have never outgrown my childhood love of science-fiction and fantasy novels.
