Welcome to my portfolio site!

I'm a Mechanical Engineer with over 4 years of research & development and rapid prototyping engineering experience. This includes 3D parametric/Nurbs/polygon modeling, texturing, rendering, 3D-CAM, and 3D printing. I'm employed at KC Robotics as part of a Mechanical Engineering team that works with Control Engineers and Robot Technicians in the design of automated robotic cell layouts for manufacturing. Previously I worked at GE Aviation as a Product Definition Engineer (Mechanical Designer) where I supported Military Propulsion and Power Engineering (MPPE) and the GE9X engine. I've also done package & toy design, and I created 2D/3D content for E-Learning training.

I'm currently attending Indiana State University where I'm finishing my Bachelors of Science in Mechanical Engineering degree. 
I received my Associate of Applied Science in Mechanical Engineering Technology- Design Major (METD) from Cincinnati State Technical & Community College in 2019 and a Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) in Animation/Visual Effects/3D Design from the Academy of Art University in 2015. In April of 2019 I received my certification in Computer Aided Design (CAD) from Cincinnati State Technical & Community College and in June of 2019 I obtained a Secret Security Clearance from the United States Department of Defense.
I'm an animal enthusiast, and I volunteer at the Animal Adoption Foundation, (a non-kill animal shelter located in Ross, Ohio).
