I have been an instructor at J. Everett Light Career Center since 2015. I launched the Advanced Manufacturing Technology program and I love teaching students about computer modeling, 3D printing, and CNC technologies. Prior to teaching, I worked for 8 years as a project manager for an engineering firm, designing and implementing logistics solutions across the country. My undergrad was at Purdue University, and I have a Master’s in Teaching from Marian University. In my spare time I love cycling, camping, and paddle boarding with my wife, son, and dog.
