Inspired by: The opportunity to create something great, something that will raise people eyebrows, but at the same time brings solutions to issues that are important to me and others. I want to be part of the solution, not the problem. When I was young I admired physicists and inventors such as Einstein and Benjamin Franklin, which I think sparked my creative thinking. After being paralyzed in a car accident in 2004, I pushed myself to get better and to do my best at everything I do. For the last 5 years I have been a single father, my children are my inspiration for life and design. I want them to see that no matter how difficult life gets, you MUST try your best, and with time you will achieve your goals! I just graduated with my Associates Degree in Mechanical Engineering and a Certificate for Sustainability in Engineering.
