Fabricator, Writer, Innovator
I thrive on pushing the boundaries of creativity and technology, and love flirting with what John Tyndall once described as the “boundless contiguity of shade” that surrounds our knowledge, when he was eulogizing Michael Faraday. With a rich background in aerospace and a unique blend of skills, I have cultivated a career that marries mechanical intuition with technical expertise. My hands-on approach to problem-solving, driven by a strong sense of curiosity, has led me to explore uncharted territories by constantly grasping for innovative solutions and pioneering technologies with the potential to revolutionize our future in space.
At the heart of my work lies a commitment to questioning conventions and authority. One of my goals is to transform the way we collaborate in the workplace, in order to rekindle and nurture the creativity that many of us lose in adulthood. From my early days at Boeing, to becoming a two-time NIAC Fellow, my journey has been defined by a constant pursuit of knowledge and a deep desire to contribute to the growth of humankind. I invite you to learn more about my professional journey, the projects that have shaped my career, and the unique approach I bring to each new challenge by exploring my resume. This will give you a glimpse into not just my accomplishments, but also the spirit of innovation that drives every step I take.
