I enjoy giving back to my community by sharing the knowledge i've learned over the years 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 bicycle is a beautiful gift.
My work as an engineer compliments my community work through the mechanical understanding of product design and manufacturing of components to help answer those deeper 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 executing the plan to solve the problem at hand.
