Engineer, Maker, Freelancer, and Researcher from Parsippany NJ.
I am passionate about creating things, learning new skills, building community, and most importantly, sharing knowledge and teaching valuable skills to others.
Over the past several years, I have taught people from all age groups and diverse backgrounds. My classes have taught skills from woodworking and wood burning to basic Arduino, 3D printing, programming, soldering, Raspberry Pi, and soda bottle rocketry.
As a board member of the Hoboken MakerBar and a freelance Maker and educator, I am working to teach as many people as possible new skills for their professional development and hobbies.
The short story is simply that I’m a maker and a hacker and a tinkerer who loves to build robots and other things that go ‘whrrrrr’ in the night. I’m experienced enough to be dangerous, but I’m always continuously learning. I have an impulse to share what I do know with anyone who has the patience to listen, and especially anyone who has the urge to roll up their sleeves with me. And I have a lab coat now. Ph34r the lab coat.
The longer story is a complicated journey to unlock the secrets of the universe. Or something like that. Frankly, there’s a lot I don’t know, and I keep pushing to grow beyond my own comfort levels.
I graduated as a Mechanical Engineer from New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) in 2011 and I work for the Orthopedic Implant Design Lab at NYU (Formerly known as the Minimally Invasive Surgery Lab) where I help design automated testing machines and other such projects that use actuators or sensors.
