It’s an amazing thing when your passion becomes your career. I’ve been lucky enough to live this truth for nearly 4 years, and counting. If we’re talking titles (eww)… I’m a Software Engineer on the clock and a general maker and DIY enthusiast on my own time. I find my biggest rush after conquering a challenge. Engineering is life. Keep learning. Keep growing. My pursuit of excellence is defined by focus, hard work, dedication, determination, and above all perseverance. What defines YOU?
