But space is really cool
This site is primarily for me to learn about web development and provide a primary access portal for some web services I'm currently developing for other side projects.
What I Do
I received my B.S. in Mechanical Engineering at Cal Poly Pomona and have been working at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory for about 13 years now. I'm currently the Deputy Electrical Integration & Test Lead on the Assembly, Test, & Launch Operations Team for the M2020 Rover.
My Professional Work
A snippet of some of the missions I've had the pleasure to work on.
Need a Speaker?
Having grown up in a South Central Los Angeles I love to inspire kids from socio-economically disenfranchised areas to believe in themselves and their capabilities. Many times kids don't believe they can achieve their dreams because they don't see many people around them succeeding let alone dreaming. Those kids tend to only interact with people who are hustling to survive. But survival isn't living and many times the "work" you do to survive isn't the most fulfilling or legal work you can find.
At the end of the day, genius is everywhere!
So let's encourage our kids to shoot for the stars. And if they hit the moon it's all good.
