I was born and raised in Meriden, CT. I moved to Melbourne, FL to go to school at Florida Institute of Technology. At Florida Tech, I studied Computer Science, hosted a television show, and was an active member of Pi Lambda Phi Fraternity.
After school, I began my career as a software engineer working on NASA’s Space Shuttle Program. At the same time I completed a graduate program, in Systems Simulation, at the University of Central Florida. At the end of 2010, I packed up my car and moved out to Colorado. Once there, I worked on a variety of cool programs at a couple of large aerospace companies. Currently, I’m working on a spacecraft that will one day bring humans to Mars.
