Education:

Associates in Mechanical Design, Louisville Technical Institute

First introduction to the industry:

I have been involved with mechanical design/manufacturing my entire career, but for a more industrial application. Being able to apply that knowledge and experience in a new way, is a new, fun, and exciting adventure.

What I listen to at work:

90’s country, 90’s rap, EDM, and K-pop, depending on the day and mood.

Dream Vacation:

Trip through Europe. Starting in Italy and zigzagging north through great cities, and ending in northern Europe to watch the Auroras.

When I'm not at work...

I’m either on my bicycle, hanging with my family, or out trying new restaurants.
