Mechanical Engineer for Hire
Quick Bio

On the basis of a childhood spent constructing snow forts, playing wallball, and riding my bike "no hands" in the Philadelphia suburbs, I was accepted into college, where I learned to write about the subject that most fascinated me—science.

I spent 10 years in the communication arts, working for an unspeakably diverse array of media entities, including an electronic greeting card site, an aerospace magazine, a D.C.-based nonprofit, an interactive children's museum, and Minor League Baseball.

A few years ago I designed and built a solar hot dog cooker. The experience helped inspire me to pursue a post-bac degree in mechanical engineering. Now I hope to spend my career creating machines and doohickeys that make people say, "That...is...sooooo...cool!"
