Mechanical Engineer - Physicist - Ceramicist - Artist
My background stems from a liberal arts education at Goshen College, and I have a diverse set of interests outside of mechanical engineering.
In 2013, I bicycled from Asuncion, Paraguay to Goshen, Indiana through 13 countries over the course of 11 months and 10,300 miles. The trip not only improved my Spanish but exposed me to a variety of cultures and people. The following year I was a PULSE fellow in Pittsburgh, PA, serving at a local community development organization in the Northside and founding a community bicycle co-op called the Alley Bike Co-op where people could learn how to do their own bicycle maintenance for free. Seeking to return to a math and science field, I returned to the University of Pittsburgh for a BS in mechanical engineering. At Pitt I founded and ran the Pitt Human Powered Vehicle Club and spent three semesters doing a co-op program at Yuba Bicycles. Upon graduating, I worked for two years at Deeplocal, an innovative marketing company that specializes in custom machines and experiences to help companies brand themselves.
