About me:

I am student at Iowa State University double majoring in Mechanical Engineering and Industrial Engineering.  I spend most of my time outside of class at football practice for the Iowa State University Football team.  I am also a member of the University Honors Program and upon completion of my education at Iowa State I want to graduate with Honors.  After I graduate I plan to attend graduate school and, from there, work for an engineering consulting company. Eventually, I may start my own business or partner with a small business such as TPG Companies.  Until then I hope to continue my success at Iowa State.  I had a great semester in Engineering 170 and some examples of my work can be viewed below.  I learned a lot about Solidworks and CAD programming and I now have the ability to be successful in an internship that would require such knowledge.
