I have been taking contracts as a freelance hardware engineer since December of 2018, and was full time in this role from then until September of 2019 when I started at MIT. My contract roles have been primarily PCB design work for consumer electronics products, though I have also written C++ and Python code for clients and advised on manufacturing and enclosure design as well. You can read more about the three projects I have worked on thus far below:
- Volta Labs: Prototype Design, Firmware, & Test Code
- FutureAir: New Schematic/PCB Revision & Manufacture
- Treau: Early Stage Schematic & PCB Design
After winding down Updraft Ventures, I was interested in spending time focusing on developing my technical skills while applying to grad school. The engineering design of electronics products is a skill set that I will always be able to fall back on in order to pay the bills, even as I strive to get closer to the user and further from the soldering iron in my career trajectory.
