Brief Biography

I primarily race triathlons, but running is my favorite of the three sports. I also enjoy cooking, watching college football, and taking long walks on the beach.

My favorite genre of music is late 90s/early 00s alt/punk rock, and I was on the wrestling team in high school.

I'm currently employed as a MP&P Engineer at The Boeing Company where I'm determining materials and developing processes for NASA's SLS.
