I'm an ME Tech that supports my team with design and assembly of prototypes for our customers. Although I'm fairly new to Sigma Design, I have been in the industry for 7 years, and continue to expand my knowledge and skillsets to support our team in designing innovative products.

I come from the medical device industry, and am enjoying expanding into the ever changing world of technology that Sigma Design is involved in. The people I've met and worked alongside have been amazing, and so supportive as we collaborate to provide our customers with the highest quality product designs. I look forward to adding my skills to new projects and ideas, and being a part of such diverse and interesting fields in the tech industry that Sigma Design and our customers are looking for in the future.

Questions & Answers

How do you make people laugh?

I guess I usually try to make funny quips, usually with some sarcasm. I've kind of perfected my deadpan deliveries.

If you were a tool or piece of equipment, what would you be and why?

I guess a 3d printer would be my choice. It's basically real life alchemy, converting a material into any shape someone can come up with. There are many different materials that can be used with 3d printing, so the versatility of what could be created is immense.

What's your favorite productivity hack or time-saving trick?

I tend to listen to music, podcasts, or audiobooks when working. I have different music playlists, and many different kinds of podcasts and audiobooks that I use for different tasks I might be working on. I find that for me personally, silence is counterproductive, with my mind wandering without some sort of audible stimulation. If It's something that I can comfortably complete without the input of others, it's a podcast or audiobook depending on my mood, and how intricate the task I'm working on is. Music can really help adjust my mindset and give me an energy boost as well.
