Currently pursuing Master's Degree
I have worked on projects ranging from medical devices to rocket propelled rovers, and just about every field in between. I may have several skill-sets but I believe that a person, despite their expertise, is never done learning; every experience has something to teach.
I graduated from UTA with a B.S. degree in Kinesiology, focusing on biomechanics and prosthetic design. I have always loved anatomy and engineering so prosthetic devices are where the two converged, as a result I am constantly in the process of researching and developing better technology to make people's lives a bit easier. However, as much as I love prostheses I am truly happy to work on any project and develop any skill because I know that broadening my personal experience will inspire and elicit numerous other projects.
In the past 4 years I have helped establish, grow, and optimize 5 different FabLab spaces and helped cultivate and bring forth dozens of ideas. In my free time I am constantly trying new projects to expand my scope of knowledge and skills, be it for fun or or my side Etsy shop. Currently, I have a co-patent, in the process of patening an insulin protection device, drafting research proposals for prosthetic design, and looking to progress in my education with a Master's Degree.
You don't know what you don't know. In other words, until you dive into something you don't know what questions to ask and all the possible questions that will stem from the answer you discover.
