EDUCATION Missouri University of Science and Technology, Rolla, Missouri
■ B.S. in Computer Engineering
Aug 2013 – May 2017
● Cumulative GPA: 3.49 / 4.0
■ Minor in Computer Science
EMPLOYMENT
EXPERIENCE
Dave Engineering, Earth City, MO
■ Embedded Application Developer (Co-op)
Aug 2017 – Dec 2017
● Collaborated with several other embedded software engineers on a kiln interface/control board for an OEM client.
Used PIC microcontroller and toolchain, as well as an in-house custom board design. Implemented most of the LED
GUI logic, and assisted with debugging both software and hardware
● Assisted on an HVAC simulation application. Worked very closely with the client, traveling to his office on several
occasions to work 1-on-1, accommodating the changing product requirements and timelines
L-3 Mission Integration, Greenville, TX
■ Signals IRAD Intern
Jun 2017 – Aug 2017
● DesignedandimplementedaJavaEETCPclient/serverforpassingmessagesbetweensignalprocessorandaGlassfish
web server. Learned about robust unit-test design from teammates
● Created a websocket interface using AngularJS for a signal processor/web-browser interface, keeping data coherent
between front-end and back-end models
● Implemented an HTML display for Cassandra database query results that could be dynamically filtered via user
parameters
Molex High Performance Cable, Maumelle, AR
■ Cable Testing Development Intern
Aug 2015 – Dec 2015
● Implemented a TCL module offsetting the effects of load-impedance on a TDR to increase measurement accuracy, as
displayed on a BLT plot.
● Developed a GUI application in Python and wxWidgets that interfaced with an existing Arduino-based hardware
platform, providing convient graphical interfaces for debugging commonly-used I2C components. Implemented a
”scripting” system, saving engineers time by allowing batches of commands to be saved and run later
● Collaborated with a coworker to update a Python library for an Opal Kelly FPGA integration board. Used an
I2C-Sniffer, timing diagrams, and various plotting tools to diagnose unexpected behavior in the board
● Created a software tool in TCL/Tk that ensured TDR measurement waveform aberration was within tolerance.

OTHER
EXPERIENCE
LIFX-Control-Panel, Open-Source Python Windows Application
■ Developer
Apr 2018 – Aug 2018
● Conceived of the application design after no suitable open-source applications for controlling LIFX-brand smartbulbs
were available
● Worked with non-technical community members to debug software, utilizng custom logfiles to expedite fixes.
Incorporated new features based on community feadback
