Jack currently serves as the Director of Business Development for Lunar Surface Systems at Astrobotic, a private, employee-owned lunar technologies company. He is responsible for leading the strategy and sales execution of Astrobotic’s lunar surface power-, thermal- and mobility-as-a-service portfolio.
Previously, Jack worked as a Technical Program Manager at Apple developing go-to-market strategies for the entrance of Emergency SOS services to global iPhone users. Prior to that he worked on a number of DARPA and Space Force satellite constellations as a Deputy Program Manager at Airbus US, and Satellite Systems Engineer at SAIC and Lockheed Martin. A NASA Johnson Space Center Reduced Gravity Education Flight Program selectee, Jack experienced the joy of microgravity on a parabolic NASA flight while conducting novel research on biofuels.
Jack received his MBA from Harvard Business School where he specialized on emerging markets within the New Space and cis-lunar economies, co-authoring a case on the role of vertical integration in commercial space companies. Previously, he was funded by the US Air Force to study phenomena of plasma meta-materials, photonic crystals and ion propulsion technologies as a PhD student in Stanford University’s Plasma Physics Lab. During his undergraduate years, Jack was a visiting scholar at Cambridge University, Pembroke College, England, where he studied national security and technological innovation. An Outstanding Senior Award finalist, California Space Grant recipient, and AIAA Reuben H Fleet Scholar, Jack received a BS in Aerospace Engineering from the University of California, San Diego.
