WHAT DREW YOU TO MANUFACTURING?
I've always been interested in making things and working with my hands. Envisioning a plan and seeing it manufactured from a 3D model. Luckily my school in Michigan was involved with the Van Buren Tech Center in Lawrence, MI and that allowed me to get hands on experience at an early age.

WHAT DREW YOU TO MANUFACTURING? What drew me to manufacturing was a number of things. I'am drawn to the idea of people using something that I had a hand in creating, as it gives me a sense of fulfillment and purpose. In addition to that, working in the aerospace industry with Allied Tool and Die means that the parts I help create go on to companies like Honeywell and Space X, which allow me to feel like I am a part of something much greater than myself.The thought that I'm working to better not only myself,but also the company I work for,as well as helping all of mankind get to space, the Moon, and Mars is both simultaneously humbling and satisfying. Though I have only been in this career for a little over a year now and am constantly learning new things, i try to keep that bigger picture in mind, especially when I'am struggling when it comes to learning a new concept or technique, or fighting to produce parts with very tight tolerances.This career is radically different from any I've had before,and while it can be hard work at times, I find the creation process to also be immensely rewarding.
