About me

I'm at UT Austin studying full-time for a master's degree in electrical and computer engineering with emphasis on VLSI design. Before starting here, I worked as a professional electrical engineer designing safety-critical control systems for oil refineries in Los Angeles, which was a nice increase in sun exposure after finishing my five-year term in the Navy as a submarine officer.

In my copious free time (ha!), I've been known to take on projects for a certain awesome roboticist.

On December 17, 2016, I signed the pledge, which states in part: "We refuse to participate in the creation of databases of identifying information for the United States government to target individuals based on race, religion, or national origin."
