A Work In Progress...

My portfolio, a product of my skills and experience, is always a work in progress. I am accustomed to independently researching topics relating to my work, and am able to learn new systems, software, and technology in minimal time.

I always endeavor to be an expert in my field.





I have demonstrated leadership in the workplace by proposing and implementing standards and procedures for various facets of the design process including an engineering change process, test procedures, software coding standards, and an entire laboratory quality system. I am always looking for ways to improve the products, tools, and procedures of my business. One of my goals for any job or project is to help the people that I work with learn new skills and develop good habits that will help them in the future.

I have led teams for two competition projects; the Walking Machine and the ASME Student Design Competition. I have led several other group projects in school. I took an active role in Student Senate, and am directly responsible for a significant dormitory improvement. I was the first student at LeTourneau to double major in Electrical and Computer Engineering, and negotiated the degree requirements with the administration.
