Who am I:

Since childhood I have been passionate about the beauty of Space, and felt connected to the stars and its mysteries. I love the perspective Space gives us, as it drives us to think in unison, as one, as one with humanity, as one with all living things and the environment, as one with our home planet and as one with the universe. Wider access to space can be the catalyst we need to shift humanity’s mindset to a higher level of consciousness for a better world for all, and I am doing what I can to make this happen.

What I do:

As a co-founder and CEO, I lead ThinkOrbital, with a focus on company development and the customer, partner, investor and talent acquisition process. I am backed by an innovative co-founder and a talented team, as we collaborate with partners and vendors to develop. ThinkOrbital is a space infrastructure developer, with our main product (the Orb2) being a large, scalable, in-space autonomously assembled and cost-efficient space platform serving a variety of use cases through pressurized and unpressurized models for the New Space economy. The Orb2 is positioned to be the premier multi-mission space platform, serving private and public sector needs such as space station augmentations, satellite servicing, space debris removal, in-space manufacturing, research missions, on-orbit storage & refuelling, and space tourism.

Why you should follow me on Linkedin:

We’re a growing company in an exciting phase of our journey. I love sharing our progress, my own personal progress, and celebrating the growth and achievements of our partners and friends from across the Space industry.

Who I follow on Linkedin

I follow a diverse group of individuals who are making a positive impact in the Space industry and beyond. I have a great network of highly inspirational friends and colleagues too that I follow. I also follow companies that are pushing the technology boundaries forwards and up. All in all to learn and pay it forward.
