I was born and raised in Bismarck, North Dakota, where I developed an deep appreciation for Earth's life because of my farming and ranching experience. As time passed, my appetite for the potential of extraterrestrial life grew. Incorporating the themes of astrobiology while teaching my high school science classes became a focus, and it has driven me to investigate this fascinating interdisciplinary field in my current graduate studies.
