About

I have a bachelors degree in Mechanical Engineering from Clarkson University. I have experience in a wide variety of professional and recreational engineering fields. I have worked in industries including automotive, industrial transportation, industrial motors, and consumer electronics. I have successfully completed designs targeting traditional manufacturing methods as well as up and coming techniques such as generative design and design for additive manufacturing. I am comfortable with GD&T methods.
