About me


I am an aspiring Electrical & Computer Engineering Student currently working at SpaceX working on the Starlink project. My interests are in embedded systems, sensor signal conditioning, wired and wireless digital communications, PCB design and full-stack application development. I am hoping to focus more on topics like real-time operating systems and RF circuit/antenna design, but I am working up to projects that will give me a better understanding of those topics. I am currently going to Oregon State University to get my Bachelor of Science in Electrical & Computer Engineering. I am scheduled to graduate in June 2022.

In my free time I enjoy electronics design as a hobby, creating projects that I think are cool/fun and useful. I also enjoy mountain biking and hiking around the Pacific Northwest, plenty of green to go around. I enjoy viewing bears as an amateur but understand their general discomfort with people being around. I can respect that.

Nothing in the world can take the place of Persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.
