I enjoy giving back to my community by sharing the knowledge I gained working as a bicycle mechanic. For the past 10 years I have helped educate people about bicycle mechanics and safety through non-profit bicycle cooperatives and DIY spaces. Empowering an individual to maintain, repair, and ride their vehicle is so fun.
My work as an engineer compliments my community work by helping to answer design or manufacturing questions someone may have about their bicycle. Likewise, community work compliments my work as an engineer through the act of working with an individual or group in identifying a problem, preparing a plan, and solving the problem together.
