Houston, Texas

I'm from south-east Houston; that little community that survives off tourists to NASA and employing people in the oil and medical fields. I want to see kids' eyes light up with questions and that Eureka moment when they understand something they've been puzzling through. That's probably one of the best things in the world. I'm excited to work with kids curious about the same things I'm interested in and see more of those Eureka moments. I'm forever thankful to the people who encouraged my interest in science and I'd like to be one of those people for others too.
