Mars Interviews Part 2

The interviews keep coming, and I’m more then happy to keep answering questions. I think I’m getting better. Hopefully there are people out there that hear what I have to say and become interested in science, engineering and planetary exploration. Here’s a link to my x92.9 interview.

Mars Interviews Part 1

I spent a lovely weekend in Banff to celebrate my good friend Meghan‘s birthday. We had some laughs, some drinks and some skull pancakes. Everything you would want in a birthday.

April was Abs month

In March I went to Vegas for the first time and had a blast. Vegas was everything I thought it was going to be, with a sprinkling of adventure for good measure. However, endless pancakes, cheap street booze and all types of entertainment can take a toll on the body. I wanted to reboot myself and get this […]
