Favorite activity outside of formula? Why? 

I'd have to say my favorite thing to do outside of Formula SAE is to play hockey. I've played competitive hockey for about 12 years, up until I came to MSU, and I love to get back on the ice any chance I get. 

Favorite part about being on the Formula Team and why?

My favorite part about being a part of Formula is the hands on learning aspect of the prorgam. The knowledge and skills I've gained from being on the team are someting I'd never be able to learn in a classroom and not only help me in the workplace but my everyday life. 

What made you get involved with the team?

I joined the team my freshman year after looking for a way to become more involved in engineering outside of school, and it went along great with my love for cars. It didn't take long after that before I was hooked. 

Past Internships (Company, Year, Role) 

Pratt & Miller, 2016, Engineering Intern 

Schaeffler Group, 2015, Engineering Intern 

Pittsburgh Glass Works, 2014, Product Engineering Intern

What do you want to do after college? 

My plans after I graduate are to either end up in the racing, automotive, or aerospace industry.
