I graduated from Mt. Carmel H.S. in San Diego in 1996. After high school I went to Palomar Jr. College for two years and then transferred to the University of California, San Diego (UCSD). At UCSD, I studied Mechanical Engineering and got my B.S. degree in the year 2001. I've always wanted to work for JPL, so after I graduated from UCSD, I applied for a position at JPL and then got an awesome job here.
