“When a work lifts your spirits and inspires bold and noble thoughts in you, do not look for any other standard to judge by: the work is good, the product of a master craftsman.” – Jean de la Bruyere

I love my job and I strive to become a master craftsman in my field.  Motor vehicles are my passion and I feel tremendously lucky to have a job that combines my interests with public service. I’m currently employed as a safety defects engineer for the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.  Vehicle fires are my primary area of expertise and I am also interested in gaseous fuel systems, although I am adept at dealing with a multitude of alleged safety defects in a motor vehicle or item of motor vehicle equipment.  If you’d like to report a safety defect, please visit or call the Auto Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (1-888-DASH-2-DOT) to file a complaint.  Please visit me on LinkedIn to view my curriculum vitae and to connect with me professionally.
