I grew up in Central Kansas at the edge of suburbia where you could look up and see the Milky Way. I received my first telescope in fifth grade. And that's where my love of astronomy began!
I moved to Kansas City and joined one of the largest astronomy societies in the country, the Astronomical Society of Kansas City (ASKC). I volunteered as a staff member at Kansas City's Powell Observatory in the early '90s, where I continue today.
Astronomy is my passion and it starts with my amazing telescopes. I'd love to share them with you and your group.
