Trained as a mechanical engineer, Paul has a passion for discovering how things are made, how they work, and for solving problems on the fly. He now designs cabling and pathways packages for data centers and, with technology constantly innovating, he believes this type of engineering requires pushing the envelope. Paul and his team strive to produce quality designs and unveil more efficiencies to benefit the client.
Paul spent his senior year of high school in Madrid through a student exchange program. He not only picked up some conversational Spanish, but also the travel bug. He has been to Colombia and various countries in Central and South America. Norway and Japan are next on his list.
While a student at Sacramento State, Paul created a club, Hornet Hyperloop, to compete in the SpaceX International Hyperloop Competition. This event “challenges university teams to design and build the best transport Pod.” Paul and his team had to consider all the different functions of this potential new form of transportation and produced 95% of materials in-house. After testing their pod, SpaceX’s feedback was that theirs was one of the most scalable designs.
Back to Nature
When he’s not designing a pod to get you to Los Angeles from San Francisco in 30 minutes, Paul likes to slow it down and head to Yosemite. He enjoys the natural beauty, fresh air, hiking with his family, and the ability to clear his mind from deadlines.
