I grew up in Walnut Creek in the San Francisco Bay area with a curiosity of science, a propensity for math, and a love of art.

I began my discovery of mechanical engineering as an undergraduate at Stanford University. The challenge of the courses fed my desire to learn. My appetite to create physical objects drew me to the machine shop. My eyes were opened to a whole world of how things are designed and created.  

During my senior year of college, I realized I still wanted to learn how more complex products were made. I decided to pursue my masters in Mechanical Engineering with a focus on Mechatronics. I was exposed to a greater depth in electrical engineering and computer science.

Throughout my professional career, I have sought out environments where I can learn and grow, great teams with drive and determination, problems that apply my strengths and skills, and companies with lofty goals to change the future.
