For the past ten years, I’ve worked for Boeing’s Defense, Space, and Security Systems Division. I’m located in Ogden, Utah at Little Mountain Test Facility – a state-of-the-art Air Force-owned research and test laboratory dedicated to the simulation testing of radiation, shock & vibration, and electromagnetic effects.
As for my education, in 2007 I received a dual bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering and Mathematics from Texas Tech University in my hometown of Lubbock, Texas. I was also specially invited to participate in a dual master’s degree program between Texas Tech and the Technical University of Denmark in Lyngby, Denmark – a suburb of Copenhagen. Consequently, I received a master’s degree in Electrical Engineering from both institutions in 2009. Part of the requirements to get my degree was to produce a thesis. Through a Co-op with Texas Instruments Deutschland in Freising, Germany, I developed a novel analog circuit control scheme for a power converter. I am immensely grateful for the international exposure I received while working abroad and feel like it has made a lifelong impact on my personality and how I approach life in general.
After working for Boeing for four years, I went back to school to pursue a Professional MBA from the University of Utah. After graduating in 2016, I’ve successfully shifted within my organization into more of a project management role where I can put what I’ve learned through the PMBA program into practice.
On a more light-hearted note, I am a long distance runner who has completed several marathons and, most recently, a 50-mile race on Antelope Island (the largest island in the Great Salt Lake). I also enjoy mental math, programming simple projects, and dabbling in data visualization. I’m also married to a wonderful wife who my accomplishments pale in comparison to. Currently, we have two daughters (4-year-old and newborn) who we’re constantly amazed at what they can do!
