User Profile: Jon

Hi, I'm Jon. I am an applications engineer at Pololu with a focus on mechanical components. This means I am part of the main team that responds to technical support phone calls, emails, and forum posts; I develop mechanical products when my techsupport duties are finished.

I have a bachelor's in aerospace engineering from Georgia Tech (Go Jackets!), and I am a member of the Delta Sigma Phi fraternity. I do crossfit, and I'm beginning to develop an interest in UAVs. I am excited for space exploration and anything related to the planet Mars.
