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.

Personal Interests

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.

Finishing up To Defy the Laws of Tradition, a 4-star 5.10a in the Left Flank area of Red River Gorge, KY.
