Soon after he transitioned into Colossus as one of two systems engineers for Colossus with a focus on Electronics and Instrumentation. Next he became the President for 2017-2018 where he led the team to a successful static firing of of their third 3D printed engine. Now he has taken on the role of Vice President of Engineering so he can develop his technical leadership skills more.
