I was asked about my career background, and where I have worked, and I had to think about what to say. I found it interesting on how to answers it. Do I focus on my broadcasting experience, college athletics background, sales work, fundraising success, economic development career, education training or what?

When you start out in life as a young person, there are many people that ask you “What do you want to be when you grow up?” Many will say teacher, doctor, firefighter, pro athlete, farmer, engineer, nurse, etc. Me I was going to outer space.
As a young child, I always wanted to be an astronaut. When Space Shuttle Columbia made its maiden voyage in 1981 I was obsessed with space. How cool would that be to go into space on a rocket ship and land back safely on earth like an airplane?
I had an LP record (yes a vinyl record) that I listened to over and over again with the narration of the launch of STS-1 on April 12, 1981. I could listen to Astronauts John Young and Bob Crippen talking to Mission Control. I thought it was so cool they could talk from space to Houston, Texas.
I made up my mind at age seven I was going to be an astronaut. Anytime I had a writing assignment for a class or an art project to make - it was going to be about space.
