Drive Team Coach and Lead Mentor
Hi, my name is Josh. I began my career in FIRST Robotics my junior year of high school in the 2004 game called Raising the Bar, on FRC Team 229, Division By Zero. My senior year of high school, I was accepted to a number of universities and chose Clarkson University, the home of 229. I had the privilege of serving a number of roles as a mentor on team 229, from programmer to team leader. Upon graduation from Clarkson with my B.S. in Electrical Engineering, I accepted a job with General Dynamics Electric Boat in Groton, CT as an automation and controls engineer, designing nuclear submarines for the US Navy. It was here in Groton where I joined FRC Team 2168, The Aluminum Falcons. My primary role on the team is the Drive Team Coach; however, like every mentor on the team, we all have a hand in every aspect of the team. My goal is to inspire the students on our team to aspire to become our country's next leaders and innovators through dedication, hard work, and the desire to always improve. I challenge everyone of my students to not be a follower but a doer.
