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 being the dark sky coordinator at Cedar Breaks National Monument. I also teach astronomy to budding inner-city kids at the HEAF. When 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, the Amateur Astronomers Association New York, the Astronomische Gesellschaft, and the American Association of Variable Star Observers.
