● Mechanical engineer seeking a challenging career in the overlap of business, people, and engineering.

● Utilize my diverse background in instructing, machining, manufacturing, quality, customer-focused design, and leadership. Education and Training

B.Sc. in Mechanical Engineering, Purdue University, West Lafayette, IN, USA December 2015 Lean Manufacturing, Ivy Tech Corporate College, Lafayette, IN, USA September 2016 Six Sigma Greenbelt, Purdue University Manufacturing Extension Program, Lafayette, IN, USA January 2017 Value Stream Mapping, Purdue University Manufacturing Extension Program, Lafayette, IN, USA February 2017 Work Experience

Lafayette Steel and Aluminum – Quality Engineer – Lafayette, IN April 2016 – Present

● Collaborate with Sales and Operations to conduct PFMEAs, reduce failures, and increase preventative measures

● Initiate immediate responses for Corrective Actions/Preventive Actions, reducing response time from 3+ days down to as quickly as 45 minutes.

● Train new employees on quality processes, quality at the source, lean principles and projects, and error-proofing projects.

● Negotiated solutions with Suppliers and designed solutions to reduce aluminum scrap rate by 60%, as a part of a Six Sigma Greenbelt Project.

● Established a tracking system to identify internal failures, product and process non-conformances, and this data to initiate several Six Sigma and Lean projects, saving up to $16,000 in 2017.

● Error-proofed dies and tooling by redesigning them, resulting in higher process capabilities and a faster cycle time due to reduced product inspection.

● Trained supervisors, engineers, sales staff, and production leads on root-cause analysis (ie. 5-Whys, Fishbone Diagram).

● Modified existing processes and machinery by first observing how customers use our products and how quality of products affects them, then identified root causes of quality issues and made modifications to overcome the root causes.

● Facilitated workshops on PFMEA, and Advanced Team Leadership for Lean Project Leaders. Advantage PressurePro – Engineering Intern – Harrisonville, MO May 2015 - July 2015

● Designed two new sensors to give a driver real-time conditions on tires, such as temperature, camber and alignment.

● Conducted successful preliminary testing and coded a sensitivity filter with C++ to collect useful data.

● Developed a novel system for pre-programming tire pressure sensors, reducing pre-programming time from 27s per sensor to 5s per sensor, and completely eliminating human errors. Spira Lab, School of Mechanical Engineering, Purdue University - Research Assistant May 2013 – October 2013

● Devised an arm orthosis on SolidWorks that reduced peak forces and stress on an arm.

● Assembled the orthosis which reduced vibration frequency by 20% by absorbing and decoupling unwanted motions.

● Worked in a team of cross--disciplinary engineers and built a rig using aluminum cylinders that allowed the user to quickly change effective spring stiffness of a given spring.

● Successfully achieved lowest power consumption and lowest peak forces on the robot. Leadership

AIESEC United States – Regional Coordinator and Talent Management Coach June 2014 – Dec 2014

● Closed a $75,000 sale with an IT company in New Jersey, building its talent pool and kicking off its intern program.

● Collaborated with 42 chapter leaders in the largest region of AIESEC US and generated highest growth in membership in the past 18 months, and highest growth in membership among all other regions.

● Led a team of 7 organizing committee members and hosted a conference to train 165 delegates.

● Coached the local chapter Presidents of Indiana University, Ohio University, and Saginaw Valley State University, resulting in each president achieving 150% of their target goals

● Trained 13 Vice Presidents of Talent Management in the US and New Zealand to maintain motivation and productivity at their respective local chapters.


● Strong team and workshop facilitation skills

● Six Sigma Greenbelt

● Advanced SolidWorks, Autodesk Inventor, CATIA V5

● Advanced machining
