About Me

IMG_0102

I am a freelance space writer with a life-long passion for space exploration and astronomy. My interest began in childhood, when I saw Carl Sagan’s Cosmos for the first time on TV. I was hooked and would collect any space-related newsclippings I could find. In elementary school, with a natural love of art and writing, I would sometimes give astronomy presentations in class and did a space “book” and calendar as class projects.

After focusing on art and design through high school and college, and then following related pursuits, I decided to “return to my roots” and started my blog The Meridiani Journal in 2005, which is a chronicle of planetary exploration. While interested in all aspects of space exploration, my primary passion is planetary science. In 2011, I started writing about space on a freelance basis, and now also currently write for The Spaceflight GroupAmericaSpaceUniverse Today and Examiner.com. I have also been published in The Mars Quarterly and have done supplementary writing for the well-known iOS app Exoplanet for iPhone and iPad.

I live in North Vancouver, BC, Canada, which is close to downtown Vancouver, nestled between the scenic mountains and ocean of the Pacific west coast.

My writing website is here. You can also find me on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, TumblrLinkedIn, Pinterest, Instagram, Flickr and YouTube.

Thanks for visiting!
