Born in Ohio, I escaped to Colorado in 2017.
Out of school I worked R&D for construction products. I helped develop a method for analytically estimating composite wall panel strength, designed high load test fixtures, lead products to market, and destroyed a lot of concrete (on purpose).
In my current role at Syncroness, I have designed waterproof optics enclosures for an unmanned ground vehicle, modified a medical disposable, and currently lead a community outreach pro bono effort.

Dayton Superior manufactures hundreds of millions of dollars in commercial construction equipment each year worldwide. Notably, it supplied rebar splices for the new One World Trade Center.
Lead engineer for several product lines, responsible for the design, development, testing, and project management of over $10M worth of engineered SKUs. Communicated with remote employees to successfully launch a new concrete anchor for the Australian tilt-up construction industry. Modeled injection-molded, die-cast, and machined parts in SolidWorks using design tables for Finite Element Analysis (FEA) through enterprise PDM. Designed for manufacturing with new products, and revisited older ones for cost-reduction.
