I have a wife and four children. I enjoy spending time with family, learning taekwondo, reading science fiction, and playing chess. I became a believer when I was 16 and God has been growing me ever since.
I have a BE in Mechanical Engineering from SUNY Stony Brook and a PhD in Robotics from Carnegie Mellon University. I have been working in the engineering industry for over 15 years.
At General Dynamics Robotic Systems, I worked on a variety of technologies to support the individual warfighter. My early efforts looked into using drones to get soldiers and marines the information they needed in combat. I also led a team of engineers to develop a next generation LIDAR capable of building 3D maps for robotic systems.
At Lockheed Martin Advanced Technology Labs, I was the acting director of the Intelligent Robotics lab. In that role I led LM's robotics group in the capture and execution of multiple robotics programs including the DARPA Collaborative Operations in Denied Environments (CODE) program for which I was the Principal Investigator.
In 2015, my family and I were called to be missionaries in South Asia, serving a rural community there. I was responsible for managing the construction of a large hospital. I organized the work, performed quality management and designed hospital systems. In addition, I managed the emergency construction of two new wards on the old hospital to support a developing humanitarian crisis.
I love working at Taylor, educating the next generation of Christian leaders, and sharing my passion for serving the King of Kings.
