                   My goal is to continue my career with a dynamic organization where I can
                   expand my engineering capabilities, while simultaneously benefiting the
                   company with my knowledge and experiences.

2002               University of Idaho – Moscow, Idaho
                    Bachelor of Science Degree in Mechanical Engineering
                    Graduation date – Spring 2002
                    Senior Design project – My team worked with Boeing to increase the
                      efficiency and safety of duct production at their Spokane facility. This
                      system incorporated lean manufacturing techniques to increase the
                      productivity of their plant.
                    Senior Lab project - The objective of this project was to investigate the
                      feasibility of using a digital CCD (Charge Coupled Device) camera
                      along with current image filtering software to accurately detect the
                      edge of a forest trail and calculate a heading of the trail such that an
                      autonomous vehicle may use the information to aid in navigation.
1997               North Idaho College – Coeur d’Alene, Idaho
