I have taken an interest in engineering since childhood, a home-schooling background afforded me the time to tinker and create cool robots in my youth. In high school I took a principals of engineering course and was a member of the FIRST robotics team. Currently, I am working as a college student at LBCC working with aquatic ROVs.
