Recently I interned at Ford Motor Company and will be continuing there as a Ford College Graduate in their manufacturing program. I had the chance to work on the launch of new vehicles and receive hands on experience. I also work in a robotics laboratory where I design and manufacture robotic tooling. I am currently the president of Transcend a hub for innovation and entrepreneurship. We host the country's largest student ran innovation competition where we give over $40,000 worth of prizes.

    Besides engineering I love being outdoors and hanging out with my friends. Bike riding is my favorite hobby. I also have a record player with a crazy collection such as The Who, Marvin Gaye, Fleetwood Mac, and even Kanye. I love challenging myself and always trying new activities. So if there are any random hobbies or events you have just let me know. I also love sushi and pizza (even better at the same time). "
