I am an engineer and have nearly 20 years experience in several disciplines. I have a passion for problem solving and love a good challenge.
I started my career as a mechanical engineer.
While designing building systems for labs, offices, and airports I studied systems engineering.
During my studies I got a taste of software engineering and I was quickly recruited to work on software for medical devices. I worked on everything from PC software to DSP algorithms to embedded Linux firmware.
Of course having the title of 'software engineer' seemed a little off given my background, so I went ahead an worked through a masters program in computer engineering.
Currently I am working as a firmware engineer for portable test equipment and I love the work.
In addition to my professional life I enjoy being outdoors, especially mountain biking, paddle boarding, and trail running. I am also on the board of directors for a local charity and handle the IT work for them.
