I am a Materials Engineer with a passion for renewable energy technology, materials testing and 3D printing. I started my career at Union College, where I got a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering. I then went to Northeastern University and obtained a Master’s Degree in Mechanical Engineer with a concentration in Material’s Science. While at Northeastern, I worked within the department to run materials characterization tools to help researchers, students, and companies figure out why things break. I now work for a company to create composite structures for Aerospace and Naval companies.
I moved to the Boston in 2015 and joined Artisan’s Asylum. I now run the 3D printing Shop and teach 3D printing to members and non-members alike. I also utilize the space to make personal projects (which will be posted on this site).
In 2012, I was first invited to PAX East with friends. Having always loved Halloween and making costumes for that, I decided to make a very basic pokemon trainer cosplay, thus sparking my passion for making props and costumes. I have been on and off making props and costumes since then. In 2015 I began using 3D printers to make props. I now give panels at conventions on how to do this.
