I am an Environmental Resources Engineering student at Humboldt State University in Arcata, CA. I was born in Ames, Iowa and moved here at the age of 18. I have two associate degrees from College of the Redwoods (Science Exploration and Humanities/Communications). I look forward to becoming immersed and engaged in the engineering community. My goal is to work on designing alternative energy systems to help reduce carbon emissions. I have strong design skills and have completed Engineering design class with an A. I have built many small construction projects from design to completion and have experience maintaining a residentual grid tie photovoltaic system.
I like to participate in outdoor activities on the north coast of California: backpacking, hiking, kayaking, camping, fishing, biking, etc..
