OK, I’m not officially a rocket scientist, but I am an Aerospace Engineer. More importantly I’m geek who’s not afraid to get technical. And if there’s anything the ladies like, its gettin’ technical.
I am currently employed by a major US defense contractor as an Aircraft Structural Analyst, which means that I perform physical calculations on various aircraft component designs to ensure that they have sufficient strength and stability to be safe on the aircraft.
The great thing about working in the aerospace industry (aside from the job-benefits) is that I get to see with my own eyes the very things that I study on paper. It usually takes a few months to go from design to production, but seeing a product that you helped design turn into reality is pretty sweet.
Outside of work, I enjoy running and swimming, hobby microprocessors, and the occasional video game or two (or three). Unlike the other PaleoPals, I currently reside on the East-Coast and call sunny Florida my home, which means I get to rub shoulders with astronauts. Or at least I theoretically could…I haven’t met one yet, but that hasn’t stopped me from buying drinks for people who I think LOOK like astronauts.
