Join the Movement

My classical acting background and my career as an Astronomer and Astrobiologist may seem like an unlikely combination and an apparent contradiction — but I believe this combination has made me a better scientist AND a better human. My non-traditional career paths show that there is no one way to create a life that feels reflective of the whole self, and that it is never too late to start doing what we’ve always dreamed of doing.

Join me as we shift the conversation away from what the “right way” is to go about doing life toward the idea that there is no one way to live life, by sharing your “No One Way” story of living your life differently, non-traditionally, unapologetically and most importantly, authentically.
