Background Information
I grew up in West Milford, New Jersey. Then I went to college at RPI in Troy, NY where I graduated with a bachelors degree in mechanical engineering. While attending RPI, I went to JPL for a co-op during the spring and summer semesters of my Junior year. After I graduated in 1996, JPL hired me full time. I have been working on various projects since then.
