Hi, I'm John.
and I have always been obsessed with how things work! I know, what a big surprise to hear from an engineer—but my fascination with design and manufacturing evolved from an interest in two seemingly very different fields, biochemistry and mechanical engineering. What I finally realized, after years of studying both, was that researching molecular machines, and separately learning how to design complex mechanisms and products, reinforced my understanding of the same core concept—the relationship between form and function. This intersection of knowledge has given me a unique understanding and appreciation for how things work at both microscopic and macroscopic scale, and informs my work as an engineer everyday.
