About

Graduating from the Indiana Institute of Technology accredited Mechanical Engineering program in 2018, I interned at an automotive parts manufacturer while completing my degree. Soon after graduation, I worked at a different automotive parts manufacturer creating fixturing and jigs for robotic welding and metal stamping and forming processes as well as automated industrial and assembly lines. This included creating drawings after the design was finalized, selecting appropriate material for components, assembling new hardware, and troubleshooting as well as continual design improvement.
