About Me

I have a solid knowledge of basic engineering principles and a passion for fixing things and systems of all sorts. Strong problem-solving and perseverance skills are those that I would like to apply as an engineer; likewise, I am technologically well-versed and am capable of utilizing computers as an effective tool for a broad range of purposes.


As a second year Mechanical Engineering student at the University of Alberta, I am interested in opportunities for employment or internships in the field of engineering.

I am excited for such opportunities to become a better student and engineer.
