Mechanical Team Lead
August 2021 - December 2021
I joined the Sun Devil Satellite Laboratory organization during the Fall 2021 Semester to compete in the National CANSAT Competition. I have been serving as team lead for the Mechanical Subsystem team. My responsibilities have included, creating a phased development plan, maintaining deliverable deadlines, and leading the group in the designing of the technical components. The PDR portion will be coming up in early 2022 where my goal is to qualify for the competition and represent ASU as one of the top teams.
Google Hardware Product Sprint Mechanical Engineer
June 2021 - August 2021
During the summer of 2021 I applied to join the Google Hardware Product Sprint where I was then one of about 20 students selected from across the country to work directly with Google employees in learning injection molding design. While I was in the program I developed a product from conceptual design all the way through to a physical prototype. My time consisted of spending 10+ hours a week on going through different CAD iterations each time applying new injection molding standards such as uniform wall thickness, DFM/DFA, tolerance analysis, and fastener design among other things. I have made great connections and am happy with my time spent over the summer.
General Dynamics Land Systems
Systems Integration Intern
May 2021 - August 2021
At the beginning of the summer of 2021 I drove across the country from Arizona to Michigan to work as a Systems Integration Engineering Intern for General Dynamics Land Systems. During my time at the company I was responsible for working with multiple departments to oversee the development of prototypes being made in the M1A2 Tank division. I was also working on a project where I developed an assembly manual, worked with mechanics, worked with the fabrication team, and talked to vendors to oversee the application of a new module that would be applied to over 3000 vehicles. I had a great time at General Dynamics and was offered a full time position due to my work ethic and the accomplishments I had on the team.
Helios Rocketry ASU
Testing Team Recovery Systems
February 2020 - March 2021
During the Spring 2020 semester I applied for and joined the Helios Rocketry club at ASU. At the time Helios was preparing for the Base 11 Space Challenge and I joined in as part of the flight dynamics recovery system team. The Base 11 Space Challenge was a competition where teams needed to develop a rocket system to reach the Karman Line and return safely. I was developing my technical skills throughout my time, and one of my biggest contributions to the team was developing a partnership with Yuma Proving Grounds to allow us the use of their facility for a drop test. We needed to test our parachute design and I was able to setup a tour of the facility and begin the talks of having a free drop test saving the organization about $5000 by avoiding the use of a wind tunnel.
EPICS Wheels2Africa Team Lead
January 2019 - September 2021
When the second semester of my first year at ASU started I decided to join the Engineering Projects in Community Service (EPICS) program. The program was design to give students the opportunity to work directly with a real world community organization and develop an engineering solution to their needs. I founded my team Wheels2Africa in 2019 during my first year where I was working with an international partner located in South Africa. The challenge was to create a new innovative wheelchair design that would be accessible to the community and include helpful features. As the team lead I managed a group of about 5 engineers to work on developing, prototyping, and testing the different components of the wheelchair concept model. I learned a lot through my time here and developed a wonderful relationship with my community partner Mr. Gumbochuma.
SHPE 2020 National
Nissan Design Competition Winner
October 2020 - October 2020
During the Fall 2020 semester I applied to compete in the SHPE Annual Nissan Design Competition. I was one of 24 students selected and then worked in a virtual environment with two randomly chosen team members from across the country. The competition was a week long sprint with daily presentations regarding the product we were supposed to conceptualize. I worked as part of Team Echo where my idea was to create a system within the Nissan vehicles that utilizes Ultra-Wideband Technology to create a more connected ecosystem. My knowledge in Adobe After Effects and technical knowledge allowed me to assist in creating a wonderful presentation that placed 1st in the country.
HBSA Executive Board Member
Collegiate Success Coordinator
April 2019 - January 2020
I joined the Hispanic Business Students Association (HBSA) during the end of my first year of school at ASU. The reason I joined a business organization was because I wanted to gain a new perspective on problem solving from an organization outside the realm of engineering. In my first meeting I ran for executive board member because I knew I was qualified and most importantly because it made me uncomfortable. I want to challenge myself and I seek discomfort because I know that is what is making me grow. I am glad I joined because during my time as collegiate success coordinator I developed a great relationship with other members, I supported students in their academic career by sending scholarship/internship information, and I created wellness events to make sure everybody was taking care of their mental health and feeling well prepared.
Worked as an undergraduate teaching assistant for an intro to CAD class. It allowed me to foster faculty relations and teach students about different skills that have helped me.
Microsoft Support Specialist
Worked at Education at Work where I learned Microsoft Office skills to help customers. I spent my time in a call center where I increased resolve rates by 20%.
Served as a Fulton Ambassador after being selected from an interview setting. I gave tours of the Engineering facilities and spoke with families about the opportunities ASU offered.
Growing up I worked in multiple retail roles such as, Tommy Hilfiger, Guess, and Best Buy. I always exceled at my job because I worked hard and spoke two languages, Spanish and English. I learned a lot about customer centric business.
