Astronaut candidate's profile
What is your current job?
Mission Manager, SpaceX - I lead a team that coordinates all technical and programmatic aspects involved in launching a large multi-satellite space mission on a Falcon Heavy rocket. This includes planning and coordinating all mission analysis (orbital dynamics, structures, thermal, electrical interface, etc.), logistics, ground operations, and master schedule.
Why do you want to become an astronaut?
I believe firmly in the goal of making humanity a multi-planetary species. Becoming an astronaut and applying my skills on a mission to space would be the most direct contribution I could make to that cause. This has been the driving goal and aspiration of my life, and there is nothing that I am more eager to dedicate myself to. It would be an incredible privilege to participate in scientific discovery, observe our planet from orbit, and share my sense of wonder with the people of the world.
