How long have you been into Sport Rocketry?
"I rediscovered rocketry in March 2003, however, I have great memories as a kid building & flying several Estes rockets with my dad." - 01/2008

What organizations are you a member of?
"NAR & I have been the Vice President of Spaceport Rocketry Association (NAR342/TRA73) since 2004."

What level are you certified to?
"Level 2."

What is your all time favorite rocket?
"So many to choose from. My PML Phobos (that I certified Level 1 with) is special to me because it was the first non-Estes rocket I ever built & one of the first when I got back into the hobby. There are several USR kits that I really like how they fly. And I love a good draggy spool or saucer every once in a while too!"

Why do you enjoy supporting the EMRR website?
"I see it as "paying it forward" to the hobby & rocketry community. When friends, family, & strangers ask me about rockets, the first place I recommend they look is EMRR--especially since I have contributed to the site!"

Tell me an interesting rocket related experience?
"Since Spaceport Rocketry Association's field is less than 45 miles from KSC's VAB, we are fortunate to have club members that work at NASA. Yeah, I know some real rocket scientists!"

What's your favorite aspect of the hobby?
"I love the duality of rocketry: The designing & building parts are usually done alone, then there is the social side of going to an organized club launch & sharing a day of flying rockets with friends."

Do you have any other hobbies?
"I spend a lot of time with my son. My wife thinks I spend too much time on the computer too."

What developments would you like to see in sport rocketry?
"Anything to keep the hobby growing, especially in ways to eliminate or (legally!) navigate around the regulatory issues currently facing the hobby. Continued innovation with methods of tracking our rockets during flight & recovery would be helpful too."
