About Xavier Williams:

My name is Xavier Williams. I am Black American man from rural Ohio. Due to my background as a farm and military kid, I learned to work hard and smart. My father and his father before him made sure that I understood how to design, develop, and execute creations. It was important that I learned to think on my feet for creative solutions. In time I discovered my love for engineering and solving problems, so I chose engineering when university was upon me. In my time as an engineer, I have developed many key skills. Effective communication, critical thinking, and of course an engineer’s insight into problems. All and more are listed in this resume.
