Brief Biographical Sketch:

I love building / breaking / fixing / exploding things of all kinds. I have experience in electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, aerospace, computer science, artificial intelligence, rapid prototyping, and spending too much money on attempts to mill PCBs in my dorm room. I love sharing my enthusiasm for engineering with students! Let's go builds stuff together.
