  • Eagle Scout

    Boy Scouts of America

    May 2009

    Organized and executed my Eagle project helping the Portland city parks & recreation, as well as met all of the other requirements. Honored to be an Eagle scout.

  • Senior Design Project – People’s Choice Award, OSU Engineering Expo

    Created a movement powered, self sustaining shoe that can measure and visualize pressure around the user’s foot. The shoe is powered by piezoelectric technology that only requires movement (walking/running) to power it. The main purpose of this project was to conduct research and prove the feasibility of using piezoelectric technology for self sustained wearable electronics.
