The one thing I am passionate about...
I'm most passionate about developing my relationship with my family, my friends, and my students, as well as continuing to advance in my profession. I'm a lead researcher in the most active branch at NASA, and while it is intense having a whole team of experts depending on me, the occupation is so fulfilling that it hasn't once felt like a job. I am surrounded by the best colleagues and friends, and in return, I have a strong sense of duty to protect them. Apart from steering this country's space exploration program, I'm also heavily active in training and mentoring the youth of America.
