My Objective

I am an undergraduate Aerospace Engineering student with a focus on Astronautics and a minor in Electronic Engineering studying at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in Prescott, Arizona.

Education and Experience

B.S. in Aerospace Engineering• 2021 • Embry-Riddle

Currently attending classes and hoping to graduate in 2021 with a B.S. in Aerospace Engineering and am planning to take every opportunity to pursue internships.

Expediter • The Hub • 2012-2017

Managed a team of kitchen and serving staff. Ensured product quality according to customer specifications.

Community College • 2015-2017 • Mesa Community College

Completed many pre-requisite classes, and some Electronic Engineering classes before transferring to Embry-Riddle.

Accomplishments and Personal Projects

Listed below are some of my personal achievements and projects that I have done in my free time.

Example of my Model

3D Printing and Modeling

Utilize a personal 3D Printer to prototype and iterate my own functional designs. Fusion 360 is my tool of choice for quick designs, but I am also very proficient with other software such as CATIA or Blender. This has quickly become my favorite hobby, whether its building a new idea from scratch or iterating an existing design.

I also maintain a pretty active account on Thingiverse where I contribute my designs to anyone who would like to use them.

My Personal Blog

I manage a personal blog at where I give detailed writeups on any of my projects that I think are worth sharing. Writing has been a great tool to force myself to learn because I do my best to make sure I understand any topics I write about so that myself and others can use them as references. The blog 100% a personal blog, it's more of a personal journal that I share with the world than it is a website that I’m trying to advertise and monetize.

NVidia Jetson TK1

The Tegra® K1 CUDA® Vision Challenge

Nvidia held a competition involving computer vision to advertise their new development board that was compact had a lot of graphics horsepower making it great for small computer vision based projects. My idea was to teach the computer to identify food. Tools I used included OpenCV using Python, and all the pictures of food that I was able to scrape off the internet. I made it into the top 50 contestants but unfortunately ran into issues with the project that were ahead of my skill set at the time and wasn't able to compete further. It was great to work on a project where I was forced to teach myself almost the entire way through and I hope to revisit this project in the future as NVidia send me some more boards when I reached the top 50 of contestants.

FreeNAS Storage Servers

Running a 25TB FreeNAS server in my bedroom

I have an obsession with hoarding data. I keep multiple copies of almost everything I do and even keep copies of data that I think I will find useful in the future. I have years worth of Linux ISO files for multiple different distributions that I also have available for others to download. I have a full copy of Wikipedia that I can browse while offline and numerous other random things that nobody besides me cares about. This project has taught me a lot about different filesystems and how to use a command line interface. This is an ongoing project that I will probably continue to evolve until I die so I look forward to expanding my server in the future.

Arduino and Raspberry Pi

Numerous Arduino and Raspberry Pi projects

Most of my projects never see completion because I cannibalize them to build new projects but my current projects involve building a large LED stock ticker that reads off stock prices like in Wall Street. This project has taught me a lot about working with open source projects on Github and I have even had to source the LED panels from China myself to make the project affordable for myself. The few Electronic Engineering classes that I have taken so far have all been building physical circuits so I look forward to getting into the software side of things more in the future especially with the Arduino.
