INTERESTS AND ACTIVITIES
Taking aircraft modelling and photography as hobbies I developed my attention to detail, patience and good construction skills. Disciplined and tenacious, I like to accomplish my goals, persevere and learn from my mistakes. The sports I practice are: skiing, snowboarding, swimming, body building, jogging and basketball. Also, I enjoy reading both S.F. and science books in my spare time and based upon them, conceive original hypotheses and ideas. This activity led to: • The design of an interplanetary transport network and feasible clean energy array • Participation in the international ENEL Green Energy and NASA Green Aviation contests. • Reaching the national final of the Engineers without Borders contest. • The design of a ramjet engine and more recently, the planning and construction of a functional hybrid rocket engine, with the Aerospace Society.
