      Not really an engineer, but how did I get here? Well, I just followed my passions really.
      Working in something you love is second-to-none the best thing in the world for me.
      I’m constantly like… “Oooooooo… SHINY!”, and don’t dread Mondays.

      I’m a scientist using engineering to solve problems. I think you are already an engineer inside, you don’t need to become one! although it is useful to study it if you want a career as an engineer!

      So that I could apply scientific principles to real world situations and build interesting things that help humankind learn more about the Universe and improve our quality of life.
      So that I could enjoy the time I spend working.
      So that I could work with cool machines and instruments.
      So that I would never stop learning.
