Q: What excites you the most about working at a company like Apex?
I like to think of it like this: In an era where the sky is no longer the limit, but just the beginning, Apex stands as a trailblazer in spacecraft manufacturing, solving for a major bottleneck in the industry and enabling a new era of space exploration. Being on the forefront of delivering a reliable spacecraft with unprecedented speed...what’s not to be excited about? In addition, the opportunity to truly build on our powerhouse team by engaging and hiring new talent looking to revolutionize the industry is incredibly appealing for me; I’m honored to be here!
Q: Why are you excited about space?
Space has always captivated me. My journey began with aviation building my own flight simulator as a hobby, and since then, my fascination grew beyond aviation and towards aerospace. Los Angeles is a hotspot for groundbreaking aerospace companies and new space tech, and being amidst this innovation is incredibly exciting. The dynamic advancements and limitless possibilities in space exploration is also incredibly exciting. Contributing to this progress and witnessing humanity's potential beyond Earth's bounds is what makes this journeytruly fulfilling.

Q: Tell us a bit about what you do in your free time?
Aside from being a proud Dad, I enjoy spending time with my family, going on walks, runs, and trails with my dog, working on my golf game (really need to figure out my short game...) and spending time getting in better shape. I’m also a big football and basketball fan (Go Lakers) - happy to debate who are the best players of all time, anytime.
