Born and raised in upstate New York and graduated from Bethlehem Central High School in 2003. In high school I played soccer and hockey and was an active participant in my temple youth group.
I went to Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in the summer of 2003 for the First Class Program and started my freshman year in the fall of 2003. I have recently finished a Bachelors of Science and a Masters degree in Aerospace Engineering.
I spent 15 months at Cirrus Design in Duluth, MN working as a Flight Test Engineer on the SF50 Personal Jet. I am currently working with Honda Aircraft Company, Inc. in their Advanced Systems Integration Test Facility (ASITF) as a Control Design and Real-time Simulation Engineer for the upcoming HondaJet HA-420 product.
