Design Engineer | Cyber Security Apprentice

    

As far as I remember, I’ve been fascinated by Mobility.  My grandfather’s Cyan 1963 Volkswagen (“VW”) Camper SUV amazed me at three years old. Grandpa James and Uncle Ken were Auto Body Technicians.  I spent days with my grandfather and uncle in the Body Shop surrounded by prestigious Chevy Impalas Restoration. The Blue Hot Wheels I painted with my sister nail polish mimicked these two men efforts. Either of these men could be founded in the garage with Mrs. Heineken as they customized the 1963 VW Camper SUV.

     Today, I am working towards a Master of Science degree in Cyber Security. I host a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineer and Computer Science from the University of North Florida.  I am a Product Design Engineer with interest in IoT Security. Am skilled in Design: Creativity, Visual Communication, Market Research, Engineer: Software, Mechanical, Manufacture, & Software:  Implementation, General Purpose, Security. I have an Interest in Research and Development for the Aerospace, Defense, and Transportation Industry as it relates to Computer System Integration.  Am a team builder, excels at Time Management, and Cross-Team Efficient Communicator. 

     Upon receiving a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Industrial Design from the College for Creative Studies (“CCS”) with a specialization in Transportation from Detroit, Michigan, I returned to Miami, FL.  In Miami, I began my career as a CAD Design Consultant digitalized events for Art Basel, Motorola, and Swarovski Crystal.  My Industrial Design Career started in 2008 at Dell Alienware in which I provided Analytical Consumer Electronics Laptop Designs for the International Consumer Electronic Game Market.  Since then, I have provided Consultation for numerous of Mid-sized to Fortune 500 Corporation within the Industrial Design field that includes Lowe’s (Kobalt Garage Category), Stanley Black and Decker (Hand Tools), and Starbucks (Retail License Kiosk and Specialty Stores).

     The Design and Architecture Senior High School (“DASH”) in Miami, Florida is a Magnet School Program. This Institution provided me knowledge of the various design fields that included Fine Arts. At DASH is where I realized my passion for Product Development. The reason I chose the Industrial Design field is that it gives me the ability to solve life challenges through product creations.  My Fascination for Mobility, specifically Automotive, led me to attend College. 

     As my grandfather has done, I would like to restore a 1963 Ferrari 250 GT with an Electric Vehicle Drive-train. My free time spends on Cycle, Swim, and Athleticism Activities.  I want to help businesses grow their Intellectual Property Portfolio through Product Development, governed by Cyber Security. Am educated to advance within the Science, Technology, Engineer, and Mathematics Fields (“STEM”). My STEM Foundation began in the 8th grade.   My creations serve to solve three distinct problems: Aesthetics, Function, and Soul.
