Summary

I am seeking an innovative multidisciplinary engineering position that will challenge my technical skills and focus on product design and development. I am a creative engineer with a strong ambition to design, develop, and integrate technologies in a fast-paced, diverse environment.

My experience is in the defense industry, which moves too slow for my preference.  I have gained valuable experience, but I am anxious to move into the commercial industry, delve into cutting-edge technology, and work at a much faster pace.  I also have a strong ambition to focus more strongly on design and innovation.
