J. Stewart Singleton, CFPM, CHM, was born and raised in Southern Georgia. He spent his earliest years learning business management first hand while representing the 4th generation in his family’s retail business. During high school he split his time between school, the family business and working in a local supermarket. While attending college, he found employment in the restaurant/foodservice industry and continued this after graduation upon moving to Atlanta and working with Collins Brothers Produce Company. Stewart then left foodservice to pursue a career with Charter Behavioral Health Systems. In 2002, he decided to return to the culinary industry by becoming the director of the newly formed World Chefs Scholarship Foundation (WCSF). He concurrently began using his knowledge of human resources, business management, health and safety, and adult education to work with LMSC where he helped to develop and continues to manage, the safety and education divisions of the organization. In his spare time, Stewart enjoys serving on the Advisory Boards of Chattahoochee Technical College, Le Cordon Bleu – Atlanta and Gwinnett Technical College. Stewart also serves as a board director for L.A.F.T.R. (Liberty Assistance Fund for Transplant Recipients) and UCCA (United Culinary Chefs Association).
Stewart holds a bachelor's degree in Psychology from Georgia Southern University. He is a member of SHRM (Society of Human Resource Management), a Certified ServSafe® Food Safety Instructor, a Registered ServSafe® Food Safety Proctor and an Approved ServSafe Alcohol® Instructor, a NEHA Certified HACCP Manager, and a CPR Instructor.

Astronomers believe that every star in the galaxy has a planet, one fifth of which might harbor life. Only we haven't seen any of them -- yet. Jeremy Kasdin and his team are looking to change that with the design and engineering of an extraordinary piece of equipment: a flower petal-shaped "starshade" that allows a telescope to photograph planets from 50,000 kilometers away. It is, he says, the "coolest possible science."
