Jeff's space career began with boyhood evenings in the back yard gazing at the Moon and stars. This early passion for space led to a multi-faceted career, including IBM Systems Engineer at NASA’s Johnson Space Center, Executive Director of the Space Frontier Foundation, grant-funded economic development work, and now a NewSpace Business Development practice. Jeff has fought the front-line battles to open the space frontier. He brings space down to Earth with talks about The Human-Space Connection®, government space programs, and the emerging entrepreneurial space industry (NewSpace) and its impact on society as hundreds and then thousands of people travel into space. He even has some ideas about Woody Allen’s question, “If the Universe is expanding, why is it so hard to find a parking place?”
Jeff has spoken at conferences across the United States and Europe, and in Canada, Australia, Singapore and Hong Kong. He has been interviewed by newspapers, magazines, radio, and television from Los Angeles to Houston to West Palm Beach, as well as in Europe and Asia./p...
