Summary

As an engineer, I love facing new challenges, learning new disruptive technologies, and overcoming new barriers.  My strengths lie in software development, but with an understanding of the underlying electronics, and a high capacity to learn whether through technical literature or experience.  I have experience working in a secure environment and maintain a current security clearance.
