This personal website is a central repository for my written work. It includes original work and work done for other websites. Unless an agreement with another site prevents it, any articles I write will eventually appear here.
Content is organized into several broad categories:
Newsletters are sent to the email list about once a month. If you would like to receive the newsletter, simply enter your email in the form at the bottom of the page.
Popular science articles focused mostly on physics and astronomy. Many were first published in places such as Forbes, Scientific American, and Universe Today.
Any similarity to people living or dead is purely coincidental. Most of the fiction presented here is either flash fiction or excerpts from larger projects. They should be considered works in progress.
The Journal is focused on more personal topics, experiences and general thoughts. These are not scientific writings, so they aren't included on the blog.
A series of articles focused on cybersecurity and cyberprivacy. They detail the search for a balance between privacy and connectivity.
A list of published books I've written and where you can find them. Currently there is only one, but other books are in progress.
Originally written for Google+, these were transferred to the website as Google’s social network experiment lurched toward its inevitable demise. Some are a bit rough around the edges, but they mark the beginning of the current blog.
Running from March through November of 2015, the One Universe at a Time podcast featured scientists and their research. The topics are wide ranging and aimed at the general public. The podcast is currently on hiatus.
These videos were created as part of the Universe Unleashed series on YouTube. It was mostly an experiment, and only a few were made.
A list of every article I've ever written.
I was raised on a small midwest farm with my parents and a Northwoods cabin with my grandmother. Over the years I’ve been a farmhand, father, programmer, husband, writer, and professor. I’m a first-generation college student with a Ph.D. in Physics and have published research in physics, astrophysics, and computational astrophysics. I currently work for the National Radio Astronomy Observatory.
