A Sui Generis Engineer


About me

I'm a dedicated Electrical and Software Engineer trying to absorb as much knowledge as I can. I have grown a passion for electronics started from a young age and have always been interested in the interconnection between software and hardware. I have a significant amount of knowledge in the field of electronics along with the front-end and back-end development. My motivation comes from hard work and a true interest in learning.

I am able to spend countless hours on my work due to my huge passion for learning more about the field I am pursuing. Along with being truly motivated, I have a fantastic time working with a team. Working with a group of engineers allows me to prosper as we constantly push each other to reach new limits. Not only do I enjoy working with other engineers but I also love explaining engineering techniques to people outside of the engineering field. My biggest asset is a steel focus along with strong endurance. When I start a project there is no room for slacking or relaxing. I aim to complete the project before the deadline or at least on time.


I never knew what being an engineer meant until I got to high school. My parents first noticed I had the logic of being an engineer when I asked for Legos at every opportunity I got, but I would never use the pre-made kits. I would find boxes of loose Lego peices at thrift shops, from which I would build structures of my own desgin day and night. Then I got to middle school and was exposed to robotics. The first robot I ever built could solve the Rubik's Cube, from then on I never stopped. I not only grew a huge passion for electronics but also for the software of devices.

In high school, I realized there was no hiding my passion, so I started my own company. I figured there was no better way to get real experience in the electronics field then by going inside of them by taking apart devices to see how they were formed from the components.

In high school I never dropped an opportunity to learn something that intrigued me. I began with technology and before long started integrated into other fields such as business. I remember hearing about how companies started to implement software to choose certain stocks on the market. After that, I began analyzing the stock market as soon as it opened every day, usually during my math class. I would track the market while in class and make trades everyday. I read books non-stop and listened to all kinds of podcasts just to get more information.

I believe that the people who make a difference in the world are those who aren't considered "normal". I think differently and stick with my gut. I ask questions and absorb more information. If I don't know something, I research it until I can teach a class about the topic. I am passionate about the field I am pursuing and would never trade it for anything. I am goofy with a very outgoing personality, and will always take the challenge or adventure that awaits. With that in mind, I am looking for an opportunity for a summer internship as a software engineer, embedded engineer, or firmware engineer.
