I received my two Engineering Technology Diplomas (Electronics Engineering and Computer Hardware Engineering) at the Red River College in Winnipeg, Manitoba in 2005. I completed my Bachelor's of Engineering from the National University of Ireland Maynooth in 2009. I am currently working on my Master's Thesis under the supervision of Professor Rick Middleton at the Hamilton Institute in the area of Humanoid Robot Soccer Locomotion and Dynamics.
Since 2008 I have been a member of the Irish Robocup team 'RoboEireann'.
