HI. I'M KENNETH.
I'm a multidisciplinary engineer with an MS in Mechanical Engineering from Virginia Tech and experience in product & experience design, robotics, software, and electronics. For the past 9 years I've built a bunch of crazy and creative projects that lie at the intersection of physical and digital, including jellyfish robots, , internet-of-things devices, huge experiential campaigns, and highly complex moving models of the solar system.
Though I'm a mechanical engineer by trade, I have tons of experience with electronics and code too. Having a multidisciplinary skillset allows me to bridge gaps in diverse teams and brings a strong sense of coherence to my work.
What i do
I’m very proficient with micro controller boards like Arduino, Teensy, Particle, Raspberry Pi and have tons of experience interfacing with all sorts of electrical hardware, from huge actuators to tiny sensors. I can also design, layout, and assemble SMD printed circuit boards when a project needs to be taken to the next level.
I’m very comfortable designing applications to interface with hardware projects. I primarily use Processing for desktop apps and the MEAN stack for web apps. I’m a graduate of the FSJS Treehouse Techdegree Bootcamp and also have experience collaborating in software teams with Github.
EXPERIENTIAL + FABRICATION
I’ve done a lot of work with big experiential builds on both the design and fabrication fronts. I’m very comfortable working in a shop with CNC machines and using all sorts of power tools. I’ve also managed plenty of fabrication vendors too.
I know this might sound like a lot! But I’ve been fortunate enough to work on incredibly diverse projects that almost always require all of these disciplines. I consider myself a lifelong learner, and am constantly updating and refining my skillset through my work and side projects. Not to mention I also love what I do!
