WorkRecently I quit my job as a flight test engineer to do something completely different. I moved to the midwest to work on the BICEP Array microwave telescope which will be deployed to the South Pole in November 2019. I will be the winter-over engineer for its first year of operation. For two years prior, I was working as a flight test engineer at Quicksilver Aerospace. QuickSilver is a small company that supports and organizes flight tests for FAA part 23 and 25 certification. Specifically I was responsible for software and data system development, at least when I wasn't installing instrumentation and participating in flight tests. Before that, I was the Operations Manager at the University of Washington Aeronautical Laboratory (UWAL), where they provide wind tunnel testing services for industry and academic research.
HobbiesIt is not hard to get me excited about the world around me. I am taking flying lessons to get my Private Pilot Certificate. Flight has always been inspiring to me, and it's about time I get myself in the air! In my spare time you might find me capturing night sky time lapse photography, running, or learning a new programming language. Back home in the Pacific Northwest you might find me hiking or climbing, scuba diving or sailing.
I believe that one should always be expanding their horizons. It's a big world out there. Let's go explore it.
