I'm a storyteller who's lucky enough to get to tell some really awesome stories. My first book was co-authored with a couple of astronauts, and my day job involves sharing about America's next great rocket. In my spare time, I force people to be funny and I dress up to talk about history.

I live in my hometown of Huntsville, Ala., and am a graduate of the University of Mississippi. I am the co-author of "Homesteading Space: The Skylab Story" and "Bold They Rise," a history of the early space shuttle program.

I currently work in strategic communications for NASA's Space Launch System program, and spent almost nine years supporting NASA Education. I am the director of the Comic Science Improv troupe, a Huntsville history storyteller, a freelance writer, and a former newspaper editor and a veteran of formal and informal education.
