I taught both technical and design classes at Stanford University. Most notably, I helped each ME116M: Introduction to the Design of Smart Products, with Professors Ed Carryer...more and Sean Follmer, and Alex Olwal (Google). I instructed students in mechatronics and interaction design. I also taught ME137/237: 3D Printing for Non-Technical Innovators, where I taught CAD and additive manufacturing.
I designed and modeled critically important components on the Structures and Mechanisms team of the Commercial Crew Project/CST-100 Space Capsule. I also taught NX 6.0 and...more 8.0, both part design and assembly creation and movement.
I taught high school students the basics of robotics in mechanical design, electrical design, and java programming. I designed mechanisms and taught students how to design...more them themselves, as well as how to fabricate them.

Every thing I designed and built myself. I did most of the machining myself too, with the exception of shopping out some of the parts to a waterjet company. Throughout the course of the project I taught myself advanced C, I2C communication protocol, Eagle and PCB designer, and tested my skills in CAD in mechanical design.
What I Do
I am a mechanical designer engineer, mechatronics engineer, and builder of things. I have worked on space capsules and taught high schoolers how to build robots. In the future, I'm interested in creating exciting new technology that solves a need, in a good environment with other driven people.
I created an eight-foot tall, twelve-foot wingspan kinetic sculpture wirelessly controlled by a wearable worn on the forearm. Every part - electrical, mechanical, programming - was designed by me. I created the entire sculpture in CAD (Fusion 360), fabricated some of the parts in the woodshop and waterjet cut the rest. I 3D-modeled and 3D printed the wearable armpiece as well. I designed several PCBs to simplify wiring between the 9-axis accelerometer, wireless chip, and texas instruments microcomputer. I had them printed, then soldered them up (they worked perfectly). Finally, I wrote all the code that integrated a manufacturer API, analyzed the data, and sent it out over wireless to another setup attached to the kinetic sculpture. I didn't sleep for a few weeks, but it was worth it. The final parts - kinetic sculpture and wearable vambrace - were shown at the Stanford Design Program's "Personal Statements" exhibit in December 2015.
