I’m a curious and proactive adventure-seeker living in Cedar City, UT. 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 chasing eclipses. My night job is as the dark sky coordinator at Cedar Breaks National Monument. I also teach astronomy to budding inner-city kids at the HEAF. When the nights are clear, I work as the astronomy guide at Stargazing Zion. 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 American Astronomical Society, the St George Astronomy Group, and the Amateur Astronomers Association New York.
