  • Currently a Mechanical Engineering Undergraduate at SDSM&T, and a engineering intern at POET, LLC this past summer. I picked up brewing this summer from a buddy who is part of the SDSU brewers club. My work at ethanol plants has enhanced my interest in brewing. I am on a cross country and track scholarship and currently running 80+ miles a week. By the end of summer, I should be rocking 100 miles a week like a champ. 1200 miles total this summer. ( beer keeps me going ;D )

  • Picked up an engineering internship at POET biorefining and was exposed to numerous co-workers that enjoy the hobby. Coincidentally, a high school budy joined the brew club at SDSU and was heavily involved with local microbreweries. In a joint effort we aquired equipment together for the summer of 2012, and I've enjoyed it ever since.
