Who am I?
Hi, I’m Beau. I am a working Mechanical Engineer with both my Bachelor's and Master's degrees in mechanical engineering. For the past year, I have been working at Protonex Technology Corp. and Upstart Power LLC. (a Start-up spin off of Protonex) on the cutting edge of Solid Oxide fuel Cell technology. My responsibilities include design, prototype, test, and manufacturing engineering.
While in school I completed three six month long internships or coops. I used these coops to widen my skills set by working in a variety of engineering positions for multiple industries. Working for Parker Hannifin allowed me to learn manufacturing and quality engineering. At Pratt and Whitney, I worked as a design engineer on commercial and military engines. Rogers Corp provided me with the opportunity to lead a production and experimentation lab, and work in a research environment. In addition to these coops, I developed my design, prototyping, and manufacturing skills as a member of the Baja SAE team, having worked on every system of the car.
I use personal projects to challenge myself to learn new skills. As an excuse to learn woodworking, I decided to design and build an English Longbow. After watching a NOVA documentary on blacksmithing, I designed and built my own forge and spent the summer selling pieces I made using it. After getting tired of seeing everyone wearing the same clothes, I set up a silk screen in my apartment and started making shirts for friends and family, as well as selling some custom shirts. I love making things with my hands, and am always looking for an excuse to build something new. Other interests of mine include long distance cycling, juggling, cooking, art, and anything having to do with cars.
My experiences thus far have helped me to become a well-rounded engineer, capable of taking on any challenge I may encounter in my professional career. I am hoping to work in a small, fast paced environment where creativity is encouraged. Please find my resume attached below.
