Al Maha Desert Resort and Spa in Dubai.  One of the most spectacular places I’ve ever seen and filmed.

My first day in #Dubai and I’m spending it… at the Chinese Consulate. In a very long line. 😡 (at Chinese Consulate General of Dubai)

20+ hours in airplane mode has led to a serious obsession with photo editing apps 😳

Today I became one of the few Americans to ever see China’s “Space City.” Can’t share more until back in the U.S. But in the meantime, stew on this… bed jumping training?? #ase #associationofspaceexplorers #space #nasa #Beijing #China

The only thing more challenging than packing for #BurningMan2014 was packing for this trip… Beijing to Dublin to Dubai to Shanghai… all in one month and with all of my gear.  Attending the Association of Space Explorers’ Planetary Congress in Beijing, then one-man-banding a documentary for Starwood Hotels & Resorts.  Back stateside in about a month (hopefully just in time for TW :) (at Beijing Capital International Airport | 北京首都国际机场 (Airport Road, Beijing))

Racial tensions erupting at a #MikeBrown protest outside the White House. Wait until you see how heated it got tonight at 11PM on @wusa9, but it’s still nothing compared to what’s happening in #Ferguson.  (at The White House)

Rocking the same jumpsuit that my Mom wore when she interviewed to be an #astronaut in 1977  (I don’t know what’s more surprising… the fact that she wore a flared velour JUMPSUIT to the most important job interview of her life or that @NASA actually hired her!) #tbt
