Vice President, Global Space Policy, Astroscale U.S.

I live at the nexus of technology, policy, and sustainability.

At Astroscale U.S., I coordinate a global team of policy professionals in government relations, licensing and regulation, best practice and standards formulation, strategy and plans, and more. I harmonize these policy efforts across Astroscale’s global locations, working in step with engineering, business development, and marketing and communication teams. Together, we are defining the path forward for an in-orbit services market.

My 30-year aerospace career has given me perspective: why teamwork, leadership, and service matters and why we all win when we include diverse voices. I am a fellow at the Canadian Global Affairs Institute, board advisor to Via Satellite, mentor to young professionals, guest lecturer at George Washington University and other academic institutions, and podcast co-host on all things space sustainability (check out Space to Grow!).
