Going to work on the F35 Program in some capacity.


Software Engineer
The Boeing Company
February 2020 - November 2021

Worked on the F18 Simulator to develop functionality for future automated test writers by developing several API's for the customer. These API's included adding test points to the existing tests and to develop functionality such as the ability for automatically interacting with the test enviroment. This entailed communicating with outside applications and translating work from Java to C++ and making sure that there were no compatability issues. We worked in an agile format working in 10 week increments. The majority of the development took place with Java.

Worked with Java and used Git for everyday activities.

Summer Intern / Undergraduate Researcher
Texas A&M Parasol Labs
May 2017 - August 2017

Worked with graduate students to improve upon the visualization software used internally to test the Motion Planning Algorithms being developed in a new simulator, adding forces such as friction and gravity along with including the possibility of multiple robots within the same simulation. In order to test the fidelity of the new software, we developed several test scenarios to compare the simulator to the visualizer.

Summer Intern / Undergraduate Researcher
Texas A&M Parasol Labs
May 2016 - August 2016

Worked with graduate students on implementing Motion Planning Algorithms in the real world with roomba robots. We achieved this by strapping a laptop to the roomba robot, placing ArUco markers in the environment that contained their coordinates, and streaming the video to a PC where the feed was processed and depending on the data read it would navigate the enviroment in real time.
