Ever since I was a little kid, I dreamed of a job in the aviation and aerospace industry. In middle school, I joined the Civil Air Patrol and became a certified Ground Team Search and Rescue Leader, and learned about basic aerospace principles. Later, in high school, I obtained my pilot’s license and instrument rating to further advance my knowledge and understanding of aviation.
I am currently studying Aerospace Engineering at the University of Alabama, along with a specialty track to the MBA. I work as a student research assistant for the Remote Sensing Center under Dr. Charles O’Neill, developing air and ground based radar systems. On the side, I volunteer as an EMT in my hometown of Closter, NJ.
I hope to work in the aerospace industry to design and build the next great aircraft of our future.
