I'm Benji.

Mechanical Engineer(ish)


About Me


I’m a rising 3rd year student at UC Davis majoring in Mechanical Engineering with a minor in Electrical Engineering. I like to design cool things.

Experience


I’m interested in a lot of things. Larry Page once said the ability to understand how different disciplines work together allows for a greater ability to think differently. I'd like to think my work reflects that!
