What advice can you offer to young scientists or engineers?

You dont have to be a genius...just motivated! Take the time and put in the effort to find out what you enjoy doing, then pursue it with hunger.

What are your personal goals for the future?

To help make the world that we live on a better place through my contributions to the field of astrodynamics.

When did you decide you wanted to be in the space industry and how did you go for it?

I was an undergraduate student and I found out that there was a professor who had previosuly worked for NASA. So, I went to his office to talk to him (Ron Madler) and my passion for space was ignited!

Why do you think Mars Exploration is important?

I believe that it may unlock answers to questions about our own world and/or where we are headed as a civilization.
