Student at Helsinki Metropoila University of Applied Science


An individual from a small town in Alaska with BIG ideas. Currently working on my second year of studies, I purse a degree in Embedded Systems. As a motivated student with a large background in engineering, I strive for excellence and am able to apply my knowledge effectively. Communication is one of my strongest characteristics. After an extensive history in fundraising and volunteering I am able to convey my thoughts efficiently to fellow teammates or clients. I am currently looking for a trainee or intern position to develop my skills as a engineering professional.
