Bio

I have an innate urge to make things better. Be it processes, interfaces, or experiences, my passion is finding ways to improve the way things work and am not afraid to teach myself in order to bring a plan to fruition.

I am an engineer by undergraduate education, but an adept problem solver by professional experience. I am always looking for a challenge and am never satisfied with "good enough."
