I have over 10 years of experience as a Mechanical Engineer, within both the government and commercial sectors.

I hold both a Bachelor's and a Master’s Degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Central Florida (Class of 2008 and 2015 respectively), where I was a member of the American Institute for Aeronautics and Astronautics, as well as the president of the UCF student chapter of the Society of Automotive Engineers.

My experience spans many creative and complex projects ranging from automobile braking systems to deployable space antennas. I have extensive experience in conceptualizing, designing, and manufacturing of ruggedized designs for use in sub-sea robotics systems as well as COTS electronics for use in extreme environments. I have succeeded in many designs from concept through small scale manufacturing, both for corporations as well as my own business.

My sub-sea design work includes the mechanical design of a marine robotics system that provides for a reconfigurable electronics payload, as well as a universal manipulator mounting system. I have also recently developed a marine buoy which included the design and manufacture of sealed pressure vessels.

I currently am developing a line of underwater LED lights which I am in the process of taking from
prototype to production. These lights are designed to be rugged and work in the harsh marine environment with essentially zero maintenance.

I have previously designed and manufactured a line of license plate mounting brackets for various motorcycles.

My Engineering interests are based around the marine and automotive fields, as well as aerospace and consumer goods.
