Describe yourself in three words

Smiles for days. 

Favorite activity outside of formula? Why?

My favorite activity outside of formula is a tie between cooking and going to concerts. Cooking goes great with entertaining friends and who doesn’t like food.  The energy you feel at concerts is unimaginable and being surrounded with people who have the same taste in music as you is incredible. 

Why the Michigan State Formula Racing Team? 

The appeal of building an open wheeled racecar was enough for me to be lured in, and the fact that it was with a group of great leaders made it even better. I have learned so much being on the team and the hands on experience is irreplaceable. 

Past Internships (Company, Year, Role) 

Continental AG, 2013, Transmissions & Hydraulic Actuator Engineer

Bosch LLC, 2014, Active Safety Mechanical Engineer

What do you want to do after college?

Right after college I want to adopt a dog and buy a Chevy Colorado. Settle into my job at General Motors and then pursue a master in mechanical or materials engineering. With my free time I want to take motorcycle trips exploring the mitten and eventually the rest of North America.
