Astronomy has been captivating my imagination since I was a young boy, laying on an old sofa watching meteorite showers in the summer holidays. I was previously a member of LDAS many years ago and used to enjoy attending the talks with my parents. I rejoined again a few years ago primarily to enjoy the talks but also to socialise with fellow astronomers and to help promote astronomy in the local area.
I’ve been lucky enough to be involved with various amateur astronomy projects online for the past ten years or so and for the past four years my full time job has involved amateur astronomy so I’m very privileged for my hobby and career to crossover.
I’m passionate about sharing astronomy with non-astronomers – there is nothing greater than showing people Saturn for the very first time!
