I grew up fascinated with taking things apart and studying their inner workings.

I now have an endless passion for building things.


Bristle is not your ordinary house cleaning service. In fact, we strive to be as extraordinary as possible (we like a good challenge). We took a look at Louisville's house cleaning services and quickly determined that we had to re-think the whole thing.


mySyttr was a concept for a service that enables on-demand housesitting and pet sitting.


ThinkNode was a crowdfunding platform concept for new technology, to later become a full-featured environment that catered to idea validation, team-building, and collaboration.


Through research and experimentation, I designed and fabricated a remote controlled flapping-wing micro air vehicle. Utilizing a sub-micro receiver and servos, along with a pager motor, carbon fiber rods, balsa wood, and mylar, the entire craft weighed-in at 3.65 grams. This was a project for engineering graduate school.


Design and fabrication of this railbuggy was performed solely by myself and a friend, Michael Distler. The basic tube frame was fabricated from pre-bent tubing, customized with many additional structural members for strength and rigidity. The VW Vanagon transaxle was adapted to mate with a Chevrolet 3.4L V6 engine, which also required customization of the wiring harness due to the utilization of an EFI system. This project began late in my highschool years and extended into college.
