If I had to pick, I would have 1 big goal in life.

And that’s to be the best husband and father.

The reason this is my goal is that family is forever.

I believe every person should nurture their family relationships because you feel motivated, happy, and empowered when you have a happy relationship with your family.

I certainly don’t think this is the only goal that matters in life. I also want to:

  • Be a great engineer
  • Help as many young engineers as possible through my content
  • Create a life that inspires others to follow

But above all else, the thing that means the most to me is this.

If you have similar life aspirations, shoot me a message.

I’d love to connect!



I love reading newsletters.

But only the right newsletters.

(A lot are a waste of time, unfortunately.)

If you are at all interested in learning engineering and how to advance in your career, here are the 3 most worth your time:

1. Civil Engineering Academy

If you are preparing for the PE or FE exam, Civil Engineering Academy has some of the best content. Frequent tips and help solving problems make this newsletter a no-brainer.

2. Engineers Rising

Stephanie shares some of the best content for women in STEM. She has years of experience as a professional as well as coaching women in their careers.

3. Career Leverage

Career leverage is all about giving you the tools and resources to leverage your unique skills. Succeeding in engineering is easy when you have the right frameworks. Find them in this newsletter.



Creating a network is just as important as having a perfect LinkedIn Profile.

A wide network can help you solve problems you didn’t even know you had. Most people don’t know where to start so they just don’t do it. Having a wide network has opened many doors in my professional and personal life.

Here are three simple steps you can take to start today.

  • Connect with at least 5 people in the comments
  • Message at least one person you admire and want to connect with.
  • Engage with your target companies and share what you like about what they are doing.

Repeat at least three times a week and you will soon create an amazing network.

Don’t forget to share what you do in the comments 👇
