My road in life has been direct.
In high school, I had a project and made a "cellphone wallet". From then on I've wanted to invent.
Chose mechanical engineering because it allowed me to learn how things were made.
Completed two internships to make sure mechanical engineering was right for me.
Got involved in engineering based organizations on campus and went to national conventions.
Not giving up when I made a D in thermodynamics. I came back the next semester and made an A.

Helping People

Day to Day

I perform the monthly routines of the technology on the Emergency Communication Vehicles and Cell on Light Trucks to ensure we can deploy quickly and that we can connect our systems to the voice and data networks. During the routines I might find problems with hardware or software so I will take necessary steps to replace failed equipment. Also I will look at ways to improve our assets. So that could entail adding different technologies that will provide a better signal, faster speeds, etc.
