Being a mechanical engineer is rooted in Russ Tindall's early childhood. "When I was very young, my dad read to me from my favorite book, The Way Things Work, by David Macaulay," says Tindall. "This book fascinated me as I visualized the mechanics of how things worked. As a toddler, my curiosity led to exploration and the near-destruction of several small kitchen appliances."
