Justin Billingsley Arizona Technology blogger
Hello, my name is Justin Billingsley and I am a technology blogger living in the beautiful city of Phoenix, Arizona. Phoenix, Arizona is a beautiful state, but it can get extremely hot during the summer. You know what they say, it’s a dry heat! I was born in Nebraska, but my parents moved to Arizona when I was four. They said that the heavy winters in Nebraska got to be too much for them. My parents were so relieved when they moved to Phoenix and no longer had to deal with any snow!
I grew up always being skilled in math and science. There was a point where I was two grades ahead of my age in math. I went to Horizon High School, where landed in the top 25% of my high school’s grads. I studied mechanical engineering at ASU. I currently work as a forensic engineer, investigating building collapses. I am currently in the process of applying to multiple grad schools as I aspire to work for NASA. I am constantly researching technological and space innovations, contributing to space exploration with my mathematical knowledge is a dream for me.
I love to travel. I have visited Europe, Africa and Asia. This large amount of travel has greatly contributed to me shaping into the man I am now. I have visited countries such as Italy, South Africa, Japan, Namibia and England. When I retire, I dream of going on a 3-month trip to Europe.
I firmly believe that knowledge is power. We, as humans, have an obligation to try to gain the deepest understanding of our planet, our oceans, our universe and ourselves. I travel to help me understand the world around me and I research space to help me gain an understanding of the universe which surrounds me. Understanding space and the galaxy is crucial to understanding the future of our planet and where we are in this universe. I would feel honored to contribute and be a part of space explorations.
As I head into grad school, I will have a lot less time to contribute to this blog. I apologize and all I wish for is your guys’ patience during this hectic time of my life. I will try my best to keep contributing to this blog in a way that seeks to consistently educate my readers on topics related to space. There are times which I do not write about space, sometimes I write about different things which are on my mind and which are affecting my life. I will try my best to stay on topic, but sometimes I will write about other things which I feel need to be said. I would consider myself to be more of technology blogger, but I love space.
I am not the same person as this guy although I love his blog.
