About me

     I'm a creator at heart and a problem solver by nature. My journey is a tapestry woven with threads of creativity and technical expertise, encompassing roles as diverse as a Designer, Welder, Mechanic, Technician, Data Analyst, and Entrepreneur.

I thrive on challenges and possess a deeply technical and analytical mind. I'm fascinated by technology and data, constantly seeking insights that lead to improvement, iteration, and innovation.  I make sense of the chaos by scripting SQL transformations to derive actionable insights.  My passion lies in discovering unique, 'out of the box' solutions to complex problems.

 

For me, the process of dreaming, building, and creating is not just a profession—it's a way of life. I bring ideas to life, transforming drawings and sketches into tangible realities through cutting, welding, and fabricating.  My curiosity drives me to dismantle things only to reassemble them, gaining a deeper understanding of their mechanics. In my eyes, the world is a canvas of endless possibilities.

Join me in this journey of exploration and discovery, where every challenge is an opportunity, and every idea holds the promise of something extraordinary.
