Helping others succeed is my goal in life. Not everyone understands everything they learn the first time, and that's why I'm here to help. I just graduated in May of this year with a B.S.E. in Mechanical Engineering from Arizona State University. I was originally an aerospace engineer before I changed my major to mechanical engineering due to its increased versatility. I moved to Tucson to work as a systems engineering for Raytheon in June 2015. Engineering and tutoring are both equally part of my career to better the world.
I interned at Aviation Communications and Surveillance Systems (ACSS): An L-3 Communications & Thales Company for a year in Phoenix, AZ before I moved to Tucson to work at Raytheon. Some of my passions are aviation, defense, outdoors, mountain biking, hiking, and RC quadcopters. I am originally from Southern California and moved to Arizona in September of 2007.
