MODUS OPERANDI: Always trying something new, never sitting still. Where we're from that's called ADHD, but we won't split hairs. His plans for MyMoon are only outpaced by his sneaker collection and penchant for media and absurdity.
NAME: LunaChuck TITLE: The Squirrel Behind the Curtain
MODUS OPERANDI: Fresh out of bed and brushing his teeth, this "squirrel's squirrel" is already 2-3x more awesome than most people...or so he thinks. We just think he's rabid and a bit foamy.
NAME: David Kring TITLE: The Brains
MODUS OPERANDI: Carried to Earth aboard an asteroid, David is an expert on impact processes on Earth and across our vast solar system. David reviews and contributes highly accurate science to this project.
NAME: Stephanie Shipp TITLE: Z'Boss
MODUS OPERANDI: Ever interested in forcing people to appreciate the natural world around them, Stephanie oversees this project and contributes content. She also tries to add humor, which is summarily dismissed by Alec as not amusing to the target audience.
NAME: Christine Shupla TITLE: Content Wrangler and Exhibit Tamer
MODUS OPERANDI: Enchanted by the night sky, Christine honestly started in astronomy because stars are pretty, but stayed in order to warp other minds through educational workshops and programs. She develops MyMoon exhibits.
NAME: Andy Shaner TITLE: MyMoon Coordinator
MODUS OPERANDI: Z'Boss describes me as a baby-boomer stuck in a Gen-Y body. It's true. Despite my Gen-Y deficiency I do my best to make MyMoon a website for the people.
NAME: David Kwee TITLE: Programming Superhero
MODUS OPERANDI: We're not sure if it's the copious amounts of iced coffee or unknown imported foods without FDA labels, but whatever keeps him going keeps us in the code like John Mayer keeps himself in the tabloids.

I keep my eyes on the horizon and have been blogging about the future of the moon for three years. A resident of sunny Portland, Oregon and an intern at the spiffy Oregon Museum of Science and Industry, I'm a history geek who's excited that we get to have our very own frontier era to explore!

MODUS OPERANDI: My name's Abhimat. I'm currently a sophomore at UC Berkeley, and majoring in Astrophysics and Physics. For almost as long as I can remember, I have loved the stars and the night sky. The Moon helped me get interested in astrophysics, and I want to share that same love for our biggest satellite with others!
NAME: Demarcus Briers TITLE: Moonbassador
MODUS OPERANDI: I am Biology major at Prairie View A&M University and am also minoring in Spanish and Chemistry. When I graduate I intend on going to a graduate school where I will be able to incorporate computer science and biology. I enjoy space exploration because all the tools and knowledge we develop for future missions can be used to improve life on Earth in ways we could never imagine.
