I am a graduate of RPI with an MS from URI who ended up being a lawyer! I love building anything I can get my hands on. My son was on BERT and it was a fantastic experience for him. I am therefore giving back to FIRST by mentoring the team. Go BERT!
I've been involved with BERT and FRC since the 2009-2010 season when my son was a freshman in high school, and I never really left. Was one of the team's Advisors from 2011-2013, and have been mentoring and helping out ever since. Mostly with Cad training and graphics support. Helping to make the students' ideas into reality.... when possible ;-)
