Background/Interesting Fact
I received my BS in Physics from Virginia Tech (2003) and MBA from Averett University (2013). I served in the Navy as a Submarine Officer after college and now work as an Account Executive in the Building Automation Industry. I do a lot of astronomy outreach and presentations with my local astronomy club. I'm trying to get more people in the club to stop using their cameras to make pretty pictures and use them to observe variables instead!
