Lives in Silicon Valley
I graduated from Colorado State University with a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering. I completed the CSU Professional Learning Institute – Leadership training course, and I was the project leader of an award winning Senior Design project.
During my undergrad, I held a multi-year internship with Nestle Purina, as a software developer. Later I took an internship with Xilinx, where I conducted power consumption characterization on leading edge FPGAs.
I spent 7 years at STMicroelectronics, where I performed a device validation role on prototype Motor-Controller/Power combo ASICs, as well as design work for supporting the business. Working as both an application engineer and a hardware design engineer.
Presently, I’m working in the medical technology industry at Stryker Corporation.
Why do I blog?
My main reason for blogging is so that I can chronicle all of my adventures and projects while I learn and develop as a professional Engineer.
I have a full slew of hobby projects that I want to get started, and I think this will be a good avenue to share what I’m working on. My hope is that the content I create here will help, benefit, inform or at least entertain the readers.
What else do I do?
I’m interested in computer generated graphics. Despite my lack of artistic talent, I like to dabble in Photoshop and Illustrator, as well as 3D graphics in Blender. It would be fun to work on a graphics engine, or raytracing software down the line, we’ll see what projects I find time for.
Besides my very geeky interests, I also enjoy hiking, camping, skiing, soccer, playing guitar, running, kayaking and drinking a cold pint with good friends.
