My given name is Andy Rechenberg. My DJ name is Flux. I’m a space nut, tech-head, nascent photographer, runner, student pilot, and DJ from Cincinnati, Ohio.
I’ve been interested in computers, technology, and space (the NASA type of space) since an early age. I have worked in the following roles at NASA:
- Software Development Intern – Johnson Space Center (JSC) Safety and Mission Assurance
- International Space Station PLUTO Flight Controller – Flight Operations Directorate (FOD)
- Alternate Network Communications Subject Matter Expert (Comm SME)
- Information Technology Liaison – NASA Gateway Program
- Deputy Program Manager – Kennedy Space Center (KSC) Configuration Management (CM) Program
- Mission Solutions Lead – NASA Office of the Chief Information Officer (OCIO)
I saw my first Space Shuttle launch in February 2010 (STS-130, Endeavour) with my Dad and it was a great reason to start getting in to a fun hobby – photography. It was also a good reason to purchase my first DSLR, a Canon 7D. Since then I’ve been trying to teach myself the art of photography. Hit my Flickr site to check out some of my attempts 🙂
I graduated from the University of Illinois at Springfield Magna Cum Laude with a B.Sc in Computer Science in 2014.
I am pursuing my private pilot certificate. If you’ve ever wanted to learn to fly, do it! Find a local flight school that offers discovery flights and see if you’d really like it. They’re usually around $50-100US and you get to fly for about an hour. Depending on your pilot you may even be able to take the controls for a few minutes.
Well, those are the basics about me. Make sure to check out all my social media outlets – links are in the footer of every page on this site.
