I’m Adam Wuerl and write very occasionally at veridical.net. As it says on the Twitters (@wuerl, and @firstname.lastname@example.org), I’m an aerospace engineer, Star Wars nerd, PowerPoint hater, and family barista.
I studied aerospace engineering at the University of Washington and then Stanford. During my junior year I was a co-op at NASA Johnson Space Center, left after one term, then worked at Andrews Space while I finished undergrad. I spent nine years at Lockheed Martin (Sunnyvale, CA then Huntsville, AL), then moved to Seattle where I worked at Spaceflight Industries1 for five years before starting at Blue Origin, where I'm currently the Director of Advanced Concepts and Strategy.
I’ve worked on launch vehicles (mostly conceptual), satellites (all real), missile defense systems (some of both), and other things I can’t talk about.
