Space Exploration

In 2014, I was selected as one of 50 social media correspondents to participate in the NASA Social event for the SpaceX CRS-3 launch, which in turn brought me to the attention of SpaceFlight Insider, where I had the privilege of working as a photographer for 18 months.

Starting in January 2016, and along with NASA Social alumni Bill Jelen and Michael Seeley, I co-founded We Report Space, a news outlet showcasing content created by other NASA Social attendees.
