Andy Weir
How I bungled into being a bestselling author

ANDY WEIR built a career as a software engineer until the success of his first published novel, THE MARTIAN, allowed him to live out his dream of writing fulltime. He is a lifelong space nerd and a devoted hobbyist of subjects such as relativistic physics, orbital mechanics, and the history of manned spaceflight. He also mixes a mean cocktail. He lives in California.


New Headshots for the 2020 Membership Directory

Is your Rotary directory photo in need of updating? Maybe it's out of date (let's face it, some of you are barely recognizable!), goofy, the wrong dimensions or you just don't love it... Whatever the case, our amazing Photography Committee will be at the Summit Center on Wednesday, September 18th and September 25th to take a new headshot for you. 

We are trying to get the size and shape of photos standardized for the 2020 Directory, so please consider getting your picture taken. You will have an opportunity to review your photo and decide if you want to use it.
