Finite Earth. Finite Resources.
Humans Consume Energy and Produce Waste.
Learning to be Sustainable is Critical for Survival here and in the Universe
In 2010 I went to the International Space University Space Studies Program in Strasbourg, France.
I was interested in joining the Asteroid Mining Team, but I was encouraged to step out of my comfort zone.
I chose to participate in the Carbon Cycle group.
This step towards protecting earth was the perfect inspiration for the next 6 years of going to space and learning to become a good steward of this planet.
I applied to Singularity University in 2009 made the first round cut, but wasn’t able to attend until 2015. My team and I worked to build an advanced weather company for renewable resources. We ran high resolution, local forecasts for wind farms using weather research forecasting models, cloud computing and connected sensors.
From 2011 to 2016 I worked at Moon Express.

We must protect our future homes.
Exploration of Space = Exploration of Planet Earth.
Advancements in instrumentation, networking, and computation will allow us to become excellent stewards of our Earth.
We need to learn the skills to survive and sustain on other planetary bodies and space stations we inhabit in the future.
