I’m an avid amateur astronomer, telescope maker, and a NASA / JPL Solar System Ambassador public outreach volunteer.  

For the past 19 years my passion has been to inform and excite the public about the wonders of Astronomy & Space Exploration through telescope viewing and building, presentations, articles, and podcasts.

This website is designed to access all of these types of events in one place and give people the opportunity explore the wonders of the Universe.

Whether you are a beginner, an amateur astronomer, or space exploration enthusiast, I feel you will find this website will be both educational and entertaining.
