Currently I work at Apple in Cupertino, CA. I started off working with the firmware responsible for all the power management features on Apple's Mac products. Eventually my expertise grew to include all the storage firmware too, for both Mac and iOS products.
Western Digital specializes in digital storage. If you've bought any kind of hard drive recently, more likely than not it's made by WD. For a good chunk of time, I was at WD working on enterprise class storage products. Most of my responsibilities revolved around writing firmware for many of WD's products. My resume includes WD's 12G SAS drive, the company's first PCI-E NVMe SSD, and bringup for hybrid SSD/HDD drive. I also spent a considerable amount of time analyzing and improving the performance capabilities of WD's traditional HDD products.
During college, I had two internships with Jackson National Life in Lansing, MI. They mainly offer financial products and investment options. I worked in the software department writing tools for the company. I touched many parts of the company, from maintinance utilites meant to run headless on the server side to application level software with a heavy GUI emphasis meant for employees to use in their day to day.
I went to Michigan Technological University and graduated in 2012 with a Bachelors in Computer Engineering and a minor in Electrical Engineering.
