Building robots, electric cars, and other fun stuff


A little bit about me.

I grew up in the Adirondack Mountains of upstate New York. My brothers and I have always been building things. As kids we built bridges and model rockets, but as we grew up our projects became more ambitious; we converted our diesel cars to run on used vegetable oil. Throughout high school I began exploring electrical projects, automatic fish feeders, performing surgeries on dysfunctional Roombas to restore them, or adding sensors and Arduinos to RC cars to let them drive themselves.

After graduating from Olin College of Engineering in May 2017, I am now an Engineer at General Motors. I work on hardware and software integration on the Autonomous Vehicle Computing team. Check out my resume for more details on my experience, and feel free to shoot me an email if you have any questions about my projects.
