Service Description

I bring technical experience and knowledge to any and all projects I work on. I worked for 2 years as an electrical engineering consultant for Sigma Electrical and Environmental Engineering. I later worked for 1 year as a telemetry engineer for Computer Sciences Raytheon, a space program contractor, and 2 years as a digital signal processing and digital engineer for Rockwell Collins.

In addition to the large business work experience, I have earned a Bachelor's and Master's of Science degrees in Electrical Engineering from the Florida Institute of Technology, and his Master's of Science degree in Engineering Management from the Florida Institute of Technology. I have also worked as a graduate teaching instructor for more than 4 years at the Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta, one of the top 5 engineering universities (according to US News & World Report) and 2nd on the east coast behind only MIT. During my time as an instructor, I was recognized as an outstanding graduate student instructor by the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering for teaching several circuits and electronics classes. I successfully defended my dissertation and earned a Doctorate of Philosophy in Electrical Engineering with a minor in Business Management from the Georgia Institute of Technology. Additionally. I am a licensed Professional Engineer (FL 58671 and GA PE037411) and author/co-author on four published technical papers and dissertation.
