Assembling Items

In my spare time and within class I enjoy disassembling and reassembling devices to learn what makes devices work electronically and mechanically. Over the past three years I have successfully taken apart various consoles, fabricated an autonomous vehicle, and built a bridge out of pasta to test prototypes for strength within a class competition

Knows Computers

Accustomed to working on both Macintosh and PC computers. My expertise on these ranges from digital art to virus prevention. A survey of programs which I have learned include Microsoft office, coding software MATLAB, modeling programs SolidWorks, Cinema 4D, and various Adobe digital design applications such as Illustrator and Photoshop. I have also trained others with their computer problems and troubleshooting their computer's technical issues.
