Who I Am
I received a degree in aeronautics and astronautics from MIT and then received a Master's degree in aerospace engineering from the University of Southern California.

What I Do
Currently, I am the project systems engineer for the Mars Exploration Rover (MER) mission, which is working on sending two rovers to Mars in 2003. As lead systems engineer, I am responsible for overseeing the design and technical guidelines to help ensure success and minimize risk factors.

Free Time!
In my free time I am active in church and community activities, including visits to Mexico to help people build houses. I also spent a year teaching English and Bible study classes to students in the Ukraine.
