About

I am a creative and self-motivated mechanical engineer who is passionate about design and particularly interested in design for manufacturing. In addition to a strong mechanical design foundation, I possess strong problem-solving and communication skills.

I graduated from UPenn with a degree in Mechanical Engineering and Applied Mechanics in May 2020. While there, I gained tons of CAD, CAM, DFM, & DFA experience (engineers love acronyms, don't they). I have tons of manufacturing experience in addition to my design experience which means that I will save you time and money by creating a manufacturable design in the first place.

Outside of freelancing, I am currently working on a startup venture addressing period cramps using a wearable device.
