I joined Impossible Aerospace in Sunnyvale, CA as an embedded systems engineer in March, 2018. Since moving to the Bay Area I have been exploring the fantastic hiking available, as well as enjoying SF.

• Apply RPECS as a data acquisition tool on vehicles for competitive benchmarking
• Design and implement FPGA IP in Verilog to measure electronic actuator signals, interface with hardware (e.g. ADC, flash), and control engine actuators
• Meet with clients to develop project requirements and brainstorm solutions
• Implement software development practices: source control, build systems, release management, acceptance testing, in-source documentation
• Develop low-level drivers for RPECS hardware and high-level software libraries in C and C++
• Reverse-engineer automotive diagnostic tool CAN protocols for data acquisition purposes
• Intern program manager: recruit, interview, and mentor interns
I have been rock climbing since August 2016. Prior to moving to California I climbed outdoor at the Red River Gorge in Kentucky. Currently I am recovering from a shoulder injury (mechanics problem, not traumatic injury) but plan to start exploring outdoor climbing in the Bay Area as soon as my PT clears me.
