I am finishing up my BS in Manufacturing Engineering Technology from Ferris State and entering the aerospace manufacturing industry for a full-time engineering position. I also have a certificate in Quality Technology as well as a certificate in Basic CNC Programming & Machine Operation. I will be graduating Summa Cum Laude, with a 4.0 on a 4.0 scale. I have shop floor manufacturing experience as an operator and skilled tradesman, as well as engineering and process design experience, both through formal education and on-the-job experience.
I have tutored in elementary, middle, and high schools in Tennessee as well as done some international teaching and training. I have enjoyed on-the-job training of new employees in technical manufacturing operations, processes, and basic skills like welding, CNC machining and forming, metrology, and blueprint reading.
