About me
I am a mechanical engineer who has worked in product design and development for more than a decade. I have a passion for combining aesthetics with sound engineering practices, as well as a love for product and project management. Get me excited about learning something new, and I'll have a laser focus on becoming an expert no matter what the subject, software, or activity is. Your shared knowledge is my gain, and I hope to give the same in return. Cheers!
