About

I'm a mechanical engineering student at the Franklin W. Olin College of Engineering, a small school just outside of Boston.

In my free time, I keep busy working on projects like robots, human powered vehicles, animatronic penguins, automatic t-shirt cannons and various mechanical or software projects.

I've been involved with the FIRST Robotics Competition since 2008 as a student then mentor on Team 254, The Cheesy Poofs from San Jose, CA.

I'm also a part of Olin College's award-winning Human Powered Vehicle Team.
