I have worked at Micron for 18 years as a Test Engineer. Prior to Micron I was a Mathematics/Computer Applications teacher for 8 years. My oldest son Boden joined the team as a freshman (2014) and stayed with the team all 4 of his high school years. My son Taesh joined the team this year as freshman. Last year was my first year as a mentor and I help out where needed. I enjoy working with Bullbots and FIRST; it's great seeing our youth working together as a team to problem solve by using and learning STEM related skills.

This is my 13th year of involvement with FIRST Robotics and the BullBots. I started when my son was on the team, and enjoy it too much to leave! I am an electrical engineer and recently retired from a great career at Micron. Being a mentor on the team allows me to use all branches of engineering: Electrical, mechanical, software development and more. I love the experience FRC gives the students. It's just like real engineering - deadlines and all. I am also a robot inspector at the Utah Regional and the lead robot inspector at the Idaho Regional. It's really fun to interact with the different teams as I inspect their unique robot creations!

I watched enviously from the sidelines during the 2017 season as the Bullbots and my son Phoenix competed in FRC. I decided I couldn’t let you guys have all of the fun, and started as a mentor during the 2018 season. I currently write apps and games for iPhone / iPad for my company “Save The Machine”. I used to work at Apple on Siri in their advanced technology group. I have a masters degree from Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) in Artificial Intelligence. Back in the day (1998), I led our team to second place, in a fully automated robot race at CMU losing to the first place team by only 1 second.

After my daughter joined the team, I was impressed with the things the team did. They were using their brains and creativity to build robots and bringing awareness in the community about robotics. I decided to help out and I have had a blast. I first helped mostly working with the Chairman's team and the business side of things, but as I got to know the team members more I couldn't help cheering on their successes and rallying around them because of their losses. This is my sixth year as a mentor for the Bullbots team and I enjoy it very much because I always end up laughing a lot.

I started on the team my freshman year. The team really helped me to grow learning to work with others as a team. For my High School Career I was on the team all four years. I really enjoyed being on the Bullbots and learning about business and how the team worked as a part of the community. I am back for my fifth year on the team, this year as a mentor and am excited to work with my friends as well as the new students for this years season.
