About me:

I spent four years working as an experimental researcher studying hydrogen embrittlement in high hardness steels, four months as a scooter mechanic, and for the last couple years I have been exploring the United States through the eyes of the cell tower industry. I am passionate about seeking out the truth in my work and my life. I want to help my community by providing essential engineering services whether or not my efforts get unnoticed in the background. 

I currently work with a specialized team performing quick and accurate engineering and field services in a fast paced industry, paying close attention to detail and safety while under pressure of an intense environment. My job give me an appreciation and interest in developing structural infrastructure in my community.
