I hold an Electrical Engineering bachelors degree and have been in the industry for five years. I enjoy playing with electronics in my spare time and teaching them to a wide audience. I've built circuits, robots, audio/video gadgets, automated equipment and much more.
As a career, I've decided to dedicate myself to the manufacturing industry and automation. I program Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs), Human Machine Interfaces (HMIs), Robotics as well as Vision Systems for a living. I enjoy solving manufacturing automation challenges, working with diverse teams and increasing productivity as well as reliability of industrial equipment.
