MTU Broomball: Player Statistics
Broomball was one of my favorite things to do during the winters at Michigan Tech. I played in the off-campus leagues and on teams with housemates and friends. Broomball itself was invented in Canada sometime in the early 1900s. Today, professional Broomball players use specialized brooms and shoes, but Tech continues the original tradition with tennis shoes and duct-tape covered brooms.
Husky Tae Kwon Do: MTU Husky TKD
I am currently a 1st dan (Black Belt), and have been studying the art for over 3 years. My study of Tae Kwon Do is in the style of Chung Do Kwan, under the instruction of Master J. Henkel (7th Dan). He started the club while commanding MTU's Army ROTC program as a Lieutenant Colonel. The club is part of American Chung Do Kwan, Ltd. Throughout the years, over 120 black belt ranks have been awarded, at least five of which are titled "Master". I often assisted officers with their duties, including the creation of the 2010 webpage.
Audio Engineering Society: MTU AES
MTU-AES harbors and encourages educational interest in audio design, theory, and production for new members. More advanced members were encouraged to participate in the investigation towards new innovative audio technologies, processes, approaches, and theory. I was an active member of the Car Audio Group. We organized local competitions, as well as designed and installed systems for national audio Competitions.
I have also completed the course "Fundamentals of System Design, Implementation, and Optimization" offered through Meyer Sound. The course covered topics such as line array theory and implementations, acoustic summation issues, advanced subwoofer arrays, and much more.
MTU IEEE: MTU IEEE
IEEE MTU is a student branch of the IEEE. We maintained a community accessible student-run lab for home projects, homework, and other activities. We also hosted speakers, gave seminars/classes, and acted as a service organization for the ECE department. The IEEE lab is a student run work space aimed at tinkerers, builders, and people with a general interest in electronics design. We provided a fully equipped and stocked lab for personal and professional use. I was an active member of the group throughout my undergraduate and graduate career at Michigan Tech. The lab resources were very helpful when I spent time creating personal and educational robotic projects.
