Good Morning! (Yes it is always morning to me). I'm currently a dual degree student at Michigan Technological University studying Materials Science and Engineering and Mechanical Engineering.

Background[edit | edit source]

Degrees currently held

  • A.A.A.S Computer Aided design - Engineering emphasis
  • A.A.A.S Machine Tool Technology
  • A.A.A.S Welding Technology

Currently Pursuing

  • B.S. Material Science and Engineering
  • B.S. Mechanical Engineering

I've worked as a professional machinist for a number of years and still do in between my classwork. Sounds like a lot, but the knowledge gained coupled with my work experience allows me to design and fabricate most parts without much difficulty.


My interests are rather broad & varied, but they all fit together:

  • Physical Metallurgy
  • Mechanical behavior of materials
  • Metal Casting
  • Welding and joining processes
  • Machining processes
  • Product Design and Development
  • Mechanical Systems design
  • Automation
  • Old and forgotten machinery

I have had the opportunity to work a number of jobs related to manufacturing and engineering IncludingHarrington Tool Company, and Whitehall Industries.
