I am a Level 2 rocketeer, president and founder of the Rocketry Organization of Northern Nevada (ROCKONN). Although I no longer live in Nevada, I still go there to conduct launches at Artesia Salt Flat. My wife, Janie Carpender, is a Kindergarten teacher and each year I put on a rocket science presentation to the kindergartners which includes building and launching their own rockets. I have about a dozen rockets; my biggest one is a Rocketry Warehouse Broken Arrow 4 (8') and my smallest is an Estes Quark (5"). My highest flight as of 9/1/2016 is 5898 feet. My goal is to obtain my Level 3 NAR certification. I enjoy building ROCKSIM design files.
