I’m a curious and proactive adventure-seeker living in New York City. I’ve always been passionate about storytelling and am inspired by the positive influence it can have on readers and their perspective on life. I love science (astronomy, physics, geology etc.) in everyday encounters. I endeavor to share my observations about those topics from my travels around the world. My day job is being one of the executive producers of the animated kids' TV show Space Racers. I also teach astrophysics for 7th, 8th, 9th and 10th grade at the Harlem Educational Activities Fund. When the nights are clear, I do public outreach with the AAA and observe the night sky. I am currently enrolled in the Master of Science (Astronomy) program at the Centre for Astrophysics and Supercomputing at Swinburne University, Australia. I am a member of the Amateur Astronomers Association New York and The Astronomical League.
