ILOA: Establish the International Lunar Observatory Association

The ILOA is a non-profit organization with the mission to “expand human understanding of the cosmos through observation from our Moon”

Role: Founder, Executive Director

Problem to solve: Organize and recruit the world’s leading space scientists, astronauts, entrepreneurs and policymakers to help find, launch and land robots and humans on the moon within the decade

Comments: With a great deal of creativity and hustle, I helped organize a series of watershed meetings that brought together many of the worlds leading scientists, engineers, astronomers, astronauts, policymakers and moonwalkers. This led to the formation of the ILOA.

Biggest takeaway: The best way to get humans back to the moon is through peaceful international collaboration
