About

Hi! My name's Aaron, I'm a fourth year Electrical Engineer and Computer Science undergraduate at UC Berkeley, graduating in December 2014. I graduated high school in rural California, and afterwards entered the workforce, where I worked many jobs and experienced many things. I learned a lot about life, traveled, but never felt my curiosity was satisfied. I returned to school and was lucky enough to attended the University of California, Berkeley where I’ve studied in the EECS program. In my free time I like to code, hike, discover new recipes, and work on electronics. Currently I’m working on a robotic hand that's controlled by both voice and muscle sensors.
