I grew up on a ranch in northern New Mexico near a small town called Aztec and somewhere along the way, probably after playing with Legos too much, I decided to become an engineer. Currently I am a Junior studying Mechanical Engineering at New Mexico State University. I am involved in space based research and several aerospace related projects. Outside of classes I am close to gaining my Pilot’s license. I also greatly love basketball, running, hiking, and target shooting. In the future I hope to continue my studies to make space more livable and accessible to everyone.
