I began my military career by enlisting in the Air Force, March of 2000 as a C-130 Jet Engine Mechanic, stationed at the 167th Airlift Wing in Martinsburg, WV. I concurrently attended West Virginia University, where I studied Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering and conducted extensive research in advanced automotive technology for hybrid vehicles. During my collegiate years I was activated in support of both Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom.
My educational and military background gained the interest of General Motors for my employment in 2006 as a Design Release Engineer of Hybrid Power Electronics. My employment at General Motors has included work on various Hybrid Production Programs, which include Belt Alternator Starter (BAS), 2-MODE, E-Assist, and Volt. Recently General Motors has promoted me as an Assistant Program Engineering Manager for Crossover SUVs, based upon my engineering background and military leadership capability.
