About

I am a highly motivated and driven individual with a strong desire to solve real world engineering problems. I have 6+ years of experience in the engineering industry and and equal amount of experience in CAD design using various software. I am capable of working under pressure and strive to meet deadlines with
an exceptional quality of work. I am looking to consolidate and build upon the skills I have acquired throughout
my career, degrees, diplomas and gain experience in multiple disciplines in order to develop additional skills. I
am dedicated and motivated to be the best engineer I can be and am eager to take up any opportunities presented to me.
