Thanks for checking out my website! This is a portfolio of most of the projects that I have been worked on during my time as an engineering student at the University of Portland. I try to keep this up to date with the latest in what I have been working on.
University of Portland Robotics Club
The NASA Robotic Mining Competition is the ultimate showcase of my work. As a side project during my senior year of college, I personally designed and assembled more than 4000 parts in Autodesk Inventor. This included multiple complex mechanical and electrical systems, a structural frame, and a six wheel rocker-bogie suspension system. With the help of a small team, these parts were manufactured and assembled to form the 1.5 meter long, 70 kg mining robot seen below.
If you ask me, I always have a few projects in progress and many more on the way. I have a passion for creating with my hands and learning as I do. This website serves as a collection of my ideas as they have been realized with wood, metal, and wires.
I love adding light to just about everything I create. These are some of those designs.
Inspired by a combination of industrial and modern styles, these designs feature heavy amounts of wood and steel. Modern manufacturing techniques were used in many of the designs, including CNC machining and plasma, and 3D printing.
This is a very broad category which includes designs from 3D printed picture frames to steel welded sculptures. (Still in Progress)
Bringing together my training as a mechanical engineer and my love for design, these robots showcase both 3D design as well as complex mechanical and electrical systems working together.
