Let me introduce myself

I’m passionate about engineering and that affects the way I look at life, even when I’m not working. This shouldn’t be surprising with all the things in every day life that needed to be engineered. I hope to offer my engineering influenced perspective on all kinds of things including but not limited to recreational pursuits, travel, food, photography and music.

Here are a few things about me.

  • Surfing (In the ocean, not just the internet)
