I am an astronomer, author, public speaker, blogger, father, and inveterate punster. My passion is astronomy, and telling people about the wonders of nature. Science is the best thing we can do; studying the Universe is in many ways what makes us human. And increasingly - with our economy, medicine, and environment being as they are today - science is our best hope for the future.

The Universe seems safe and static, but is in fact a dynamic place that affects us here on Earth all the time. It's only by studying it, understanding it, that our species can even hope to survive int he long run.
I'm passionate about
Astronomy, science, Doctor Who, space exploration, and far more topics than the allowed 81 characters I have left here.
People don't know I'm good at
Juggling, whistling, and being able to tell if pictures are hung on walls perfectly level.
