HYPE Member Since:

What he does for work:
I’m a Project Engineer, and work with a wide variety of people to ensure the development, the fabrication and the delivery of Commercial Jet Engine Parts on time, and within budget. I love the job because it allows me to interact with a plethora of people within the company, all from different backgrounds, which helps my network grow professionally and personally. Of course, it is completely surreal to know that I’m a part of company and technology that allows us to navigate the skies.
His favorite thing about HYPE is:
I like HYPE’s ability to engage community members from different backgrounds to network with each other, and give back to our community through volunteer service. I especially admire all the engaged individuals in HYPE, and their drive to help those around them become better citizens of the community in professional and personal lives. HYPE has also allowed me to experience Hartford in a much more intimate way, then I would’ve experienced otherwise without being involved. From all the delicious restaurants, to all the engaging activities in the community, HYPE really helps you feel at home.
The book he is currently reading is:
His hobbies and interests outside of work are:
I’m re-reading “How to Win Friends and Influence People,” by Dale Carnegie, in order to continue applying its principles. I would absolutely recommend it, and it’s a classic.
Outside of work I love traveling to different countries, listening to House Music, reading on self-improvement/empowerment, car racing, riding Harley’s, hanging out with friends and enjoying new restaurants.
