I was born and raised in Centerville, Ohio, graduating with honors from Centerville High School in May 2017. I graduated from Purdue University with my B.S. in Mechanical Engineering in December 2021, after which I began work as an Aerospace Engineer for the U.S. Air Force, as a part of the AFLCMC Propulsion Directorate.
In addition to my engineering career and independent projects, I also enjoy playing music as a percussionist and a pianist. At Purdue, I served as the Principle Percussionist for the Purdue Wind Ensemble for four semesters, while also performing with the Commencement Band, the Philharmonic Orchestra, and other Purdue ensembles at various times.
