Education

  • University of Missouri - Columbia B.S. Mechanical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, 2.7 2007 – 2014 Activities and Societies: HvZ, 2N Tunas, Tunas ultimate frisbee, Spar-tens, IDSA, 3DPC I Started at Missouri S&T; however after elimination of my original major, Interdisciplinary Engineering, I changed majors and changed schools to University of Missouri-Columbia, also known as Mizzou. The degree change caused a loss of credits, grades, and time, creating the need for the transfer. It took 6 semesters at Mizzou for completion, after 8 semesters and some time off at Rolla.

    Coursework for the BSME degree path included the obvious mathematical and science classes. It also included design work in the thermal, mechanical, and general engineering fields. This included a Senior design project in cooperation with a local business where we were able to present 2 prototypes of our design, impressing the judging parties. Finally, 2 CAD courses were included, 1 for NX, and another for SolidWorks. Also, as required credits I took multiple fine arts classes. The fine art classes included sculpture and drawing, allowing better insight into their use in prototyping.

    While at Rolla I assisted in founding, and was an officer in, HvZ for Rolla, IDSA-Rolla chapter, and a political organization which will remain un-named due to it being political in nature.

    Spar-tens (07-08) and 2N Tunas (08-09) were social organizations in the dorms which existed for those years alone.

    At Mizzou I assisted in the founding of 3DPC, a 3D printing club dedicated to expanding the hobby/early adopter level of 3D printing. While we had access to all 4 types of printers (FDM, SLS, Stereo-lithography, and gypsum-binder based) we mainly focused on desktop FDM printers. This is when I came into the possession of my i3 Prusa FDM printer. I also was granted 2 years of access for SolidWorks on my personal computer.

Other experience

  • SketchUp At 18 I acquired an early version of SketchUp and used it for 5-10 years on various personal projects, including a desk for my future office.
  • Hobby Foundry At 16 I began melting and casting Aluminum and other metals in a hobby foundry that I built. While many iterations have occurred, I'm still an owner-operator of a small Foundry. It has a theoretical capacity to melt Cast Iron, but is mainly used for the much lower temperature Aluminum.
