Work History
Co-Founder & CEO, 06/2020 - Current
Tlc Engineering For Architecture Nashville, TN,
  • Attended the National Science Foundation Innovation Corps RPI winter cohort 2020-2021.
  • Created a Finite Element Analysis model for magnetic fields and forces in Microsoft Excel for motor prototyping purposes.
  • Used Matlab to calculate the coordinates of stator slots based on an archimedean spiral.
  • Created Magnetostatic/Transient Electromagnetic and Steady State Thermal simulations of both axial and radial motors using ANSYS software. The simulations functioned as a case study for designing an optimized axial flux servo motor.
  • Designed the aforementioned prototype axial flux motor and hired various vendors to manufacture and transport individual motor components for ultimate prototype fabrication.
Mechanical Design Engineer III (Nuclear), 04/2013 - 06/2020
University Of Colorado Boulder Boulder, CO,

Job Duties/Responsibilities

  • Designed and analyzed mechanical systems and mechanisms.
  • Provided technical direction to other engineers, designers, operations, technicians, and other site organizations.
  • Wrote and interpreted blueprints, technical drawings, schematics and reports for new design development.
  • Tested the operation and performance of equipment and systems.
  • Served on outage engineering support teams.
  • Served on the Emergency Response Organization (ERO) teams.
  • Acted as the design authority for the site.


  • Project lead on evaluating the effects of increased lithium concentration in the Reactor Coolant System. Addressed whether the change in chemistry would have any impact, adverse or otherwise, on plant materials, equipment, or programs.
  • Developed a project to (1) upgrade from mechanical seals to dual fluid seals on two Boric Acid Transfer Pumps, and (2) design and install a seal barrier fluid support system. The upgrade increased pump reliability and greatly reduced boric acid leakage.
  • During the Indian Point Unit 3 Main Transformer Failure of 2015, was a major contributor in the ERO recovery efforts. Provided onsite technical support to engineering management and the NRC Special Inspection Team. Tasks included the development of fluid flow calculations, area walk downs, performing return to service system tests, and providing technical input for critical decisions.
  • Team Lead of the Reactor Vessel Head Inspection Hit Team for refueling outages. Job responsibilities include acting as Indian Point Oversight for Westinghouse and General Electric teams performing inspections. The purpose of the inspection is to identify and resolve any degradation of the Reactor Vessel pressure boundary.
Mechanical Engineer, 09/2012 - 04/2013
Navitar Inc City, STATE,

Job Duties/Responsibilities

  • Provided mechanical design analysis and prototype development for mechanical housings and fixtures of complex lenses as requested by clients.


  • Modeled a prototype test apparatus with which newly developed lens assemblies could be positioned and laser tested for quality control purposes. The apparatus was modeled using reference material provided by a local Graduate Student at the Rochester Institute of Technology.
Research Assistant, 09/2011 - 06/2012
The Cooper Union Center For Innovation And Applied Tech. City, STATE,

Job Duties /Responsibilities

  • Assisted with research and data collection under Professor Robert Dell.


  • Designed, constructed, and tested an outdoor garden that utilizes the waste heat from geothermal energy plants to strengthen agricultural growth and prolong the growing season in Hveragerdi, Iceland.
  • Contributed to the design and implementation of a steam powered monitoring system utilizing Professor Dell's patented Thermoelectric Generator. A security monitoring apparatus capable of running on waste heat from a steam pipe was constructed using a web-camera, voltage controller, and thermoelectric generator as the main components.
