The work environment here at Tensentric is great to keep you motivated and busy. There is a great balance between work and play. The variety of projects means that you never stop learning.

If you couldn’t be an engineer, what would you be? Why?

Astronaut. Mars is calling my name.

What’s the most interesting medical device project you’ve worked on and why?

The most interesting medical device I have worked on is an Organic Electrochemical Transistor that could detect cortisol in sweat to monitor stress levels of astronauts during space walks. It was my first medical device and involved cutting edge technology with real world applications.

When I was in elementary school, I wanted to deliver bread to stores like my dad.

If you could travel back in time, where and what time would you travel to and why?

I would go back to the Wild West in the 1860’s, mostly just to buy land for 10 cents and build a cozy cabin.
