I am inspired by my desire to always achieve things more safely, efficiently and effectively.
I am a mechanical engineer and analyst with 14 years of experience in the energy industry. I have worked in a variety of roles ranging from mechanical design and advanced analysis to maintenance engineering and R&D.
I have a passion for embracing new technology while also calling upon the lessons of the past. I am a strong believer that different industries and branches of engineering should attempt to learn from one another to prevent repeats of past mistakes. I think this is especially true when dealing with safety.
In my free time I enjoy relaxing with my wife and two year old son. I also try to take time to work on my various electronics and 3D printing projects.
We were able to work with HeroX to draft challenge guidelines, promote the challenge to a targeted audience of interested parties, and ultimately draw a crowd of innovators from across the globe to submit proposals to address our challenge. We were quite satisfied with the number and diversity of both individuals and proposals that the challenge drew.
