"I come from a family of tradesmen and women so I grew up with a great amount of respect and awareness of the trades. When I graduated high-school I started on the path to become an electrician. After taking some pre-apprenticeship courses I discovered industrial automation and immediately found a passion for it. The field of mechatronics is growing rapidly and greatly satisfies my love of design, problem solving, and electro-mechanical tinkering."
