Engineer, Entrepreneur, 3D Designer

Since earning my B.S. in Energy Engineering from The Pennsylvania State University, I have personally used 3D printing, worked in multiple 3D modeling softwares, participated in product development competitions, and instructed students in engineering design.

I have also consulted for entrepreneurs with product design ideas of their very own and used my 3D modeling experience to develop prototypes of their ideas.

Engineering and product design are my passions so I want to pass on the skills I have learned in order to help others achieve their goals and bring their creations to life.
