Biography
I studied Electrical and Computer Engineering at Carnegie Mellon on a Navy ROTC scholarship, got both my Bachelors and Masters in ECE in 5 years before commissioning as an officer in the Navy with an assignment at Naval Reactors at Washington DC. I work on reactor plant components that go into nuclear submarines and aircraft carriers and my day job requires knowledge of electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, and reactor engineering. I do a lot of reading and writing of technical documents. When I'm not at work, I work on bootstrapping my tech startup, Looseleaf.us, writing software for the web application, designing a logo and infographics to convey what my product does, and going to meetups and tech conferences to network with other entrepreneurs and designers.
