Hi, I'm James!

I'm a Mechanical Engineer from Northeastern University. I am constantly seeking opportunities to use my knowledge and experience to iteratively develop solutions to expanding consumer needs.

When I am not working, I enjoy playing volleyball, playing ukulele, and applying my knowledge as a certified SolidWorks professional towards design and fabrication projects. I take pride in my work ethic and fast-learning nature.

Check out some of my experiences and projects below!
