Please tell us about your interest in spaceflight

Space enthusiast since the age of 3 years old when I was introduced to the photographs in the Astronomy section of my parents encyclopedia...which was about the same time that everyone began to notice that I could draw. A couple of decades later I became a serious space artist after David A. Hardy cornered me at an SF convention bar and persuaded me to become a member of the International Association of Astronomical Artists. I've been a member of the BIS for 4 years now....and looking forward to many more.

Please tell us one interesting personal fact about yourself

In 1998 I was able to do some research on spacesuits and I got to keep the white gloves that I had to wear whilst I was examining the Apollo 15 spacesuits that walked on the moon...what's really cool was that the moon dust on the spacesuit contaminated my white gloves.


Astronomical artist, science fiction enthusiast, and space nut.
