Blogging

My current personal blog, The Real Bart Leahy, has been running since 2015. Those entries represent my personal observations/feelings on anything from books to movies to whatever miscellaneous trivia is lurking in my head.

Most of my professional blog entries for former employers are now out of date and have been removed from the sites. However, I did write for Zero Point Frontiers Corp. 2012-2013, NASA’s SERVIR Program 2011-2012. As of 2016, my blogs for the Ares I-X Flight Test (coauthored with Dan Kanigan) are still live.
