I joined the VTSU faculty in 2013 and I find it to be an interesting and rewarding place to teach. There are new challenges every day and working closely with students on projects is very satisfying and enjoyable. My teaching areas are computer aided design & analysis, CNC machining, additive manufacturing (3D printing), mechanical system design & analysis, and electromechanical projects. Prior to joining Vermont Tech, I worked as a nuclear weapons engineer for Sandia National Laboratories and as a photovoltaic solar design engineer. I’ve also been a race car mechanic, ski instructor, UPS supervisor, and run my own company doing custom car fabrication. Outside of work I enjoy mountain biking, hiking, skiing, kayaking, obsessively following Formula 1 auto racing, and spending time with my family.
