I wake up every day and build technology to amplify the human experience. Whether building a new class of solar tracking device or simulating complex electro-mechanical systems using finite element analysis, I am energized to work on tools that will 10x your daily output.

Senior Research Engineer
Riverside Research • August 2018 - Present
I work with Riverside Research to evaluate electronics using Machine Learning and additional analysis techniques to ensure Trustworthy and Resilient solutions.
Pretalen • March 2017 - August 2018
As a Position, Navigation, and Timing engineer, I have become the subject matter expert for inertial systems and sensors at PreTalen. My responsibilities include: hardware engineering, programming, algorithm development, and 3D CAD modeling of enclosures.
Intel • March 2016 - March 2017
I worked as a process engineer doing lithography for high-volume chip manufacture for Intel. In just months, I advanced to the role of tool owner and became the primary point of contact for a fleet processing approximately $1.2B worth of product and a secondary point of contact for a fleet processing $2.15B worth of product. I also automated key data collection and took the lead to update aging specifications and procedures.
Gas Transmission Systems • August 2014 - March 2016
Gas Transmission Systems (GTS) is a leader in providing engineering consulting related to natural gas pipelines. I engaged in the design of a 4-mile hydrotest. I automated processes to perform preliminary data validation showing tests and upcoming work for over 1,300 miles of flagged pipe. I also led a team of 5 to review over 2000 leak forms.
NAU Mechanical Engineering Department • Jan 2011 - May 2014
Magnetic Shape Memory Alloys (MSMAs) are a new class of smart material with applications as actuators, sensors, and power-harvesters. I adopted the responsibility of Chief Modeler to predict the response of the MSMA to a magneto-mechanical loading in 3-dimensions. I produced several peer-reviewed journal articles and several conference papers.
Masters of Science in Mechanical Engineering
Northern Arizona University • May 2014
My studies included Finite Element Analysis (ie. FEA, FEM), Automatic Controls, and Smart Materials. My thesis focused on modeling the response of magnetic shape memory alloys (MSMAs or FMSMAs) to magneto-mechanical loadings in 3 dimensions.
Bachelors of Science in Mechanical Engineering
Northern Arizona University • May 2012
Obtained my bachelors in Mechanical Engineering with an emphasis on solid mechanics.
Bachelors of Science in Mathematics
Northern Arizona University • May 2012
Obtained my bachelors in Mathematics concurrently with my bachelors in Mechanical Engineering. Emphasis in applied mathematics.
Designed and manufactured Arduino-clone.
NinjaJOBO is your trained assassin: automating your job hunt, so you can get on with your life.
I developed a new type of solar tracking device using smart materials instead of motors. Check details for pseudo-schematics and implementation.
I worked on a positive displacement pump actuated by smart materials.
By showing that the equations governing our washboard were the same as a driven pendulum, I demonstrated that this system is chaotic. After using MATLAB to find the proper parameters, we built a system that did exhibit the same chaos we predicted.
Ok, now you know a little bit about me, but I still know nothing about you!
I would love to change that!
