Bio

I have the experiences, skills, and knowledge to be an invaluable asset for any company. Circuitry has been more than simply a hobby for me since my early childhood, and Electronics Engineering has been my passion for almost all of my life, since 17 years of age. I studied Electronics Engineering Technology at DeVry College of New York and received my Bachelor of Technology degree on June 18, 2010.

I am a Veteran who served seven years on active duty in the US Army (1999-2006) and six years in the New York Army National Guard (2006-2012). I have been deployed two times in support of the War in Iraq (2005 & 2006)

As a soldier, my job was to conduct Chemical, Biological, Radiological, and Nuclear (CBRN) operations, primarily defensive procedures and tactics; to advise my company on policies and procedures; to maintain CBRN instruments; to perform CBRN Reconnaissance; and to train soldiers. I have a Secret Security Clearance and I am First Responder and HazmatID qualified.

I became interested in Science and Technology during my early childhood, by my innate curiosity of the natural and technological wonders of the Physical World that we live in. Before I had any concept of electricity, I had experimented with it. Today, I still experience wonder and amazement at the moment when a light bulb “comes to life” with only a wire and a power cell.

To see a rocket blasting off the Earth’s surface and landing a robot onto another planet, strikes such awe and amazement, as if a benevolent spark were igniting my soul. This compelling feeling drives me to “reach for the stars,” to want to learn and discover, and then to share all of my knowledge with everyone.

As one of 50 selected members of NASA’s Social Media, I witnessed a rocket launch. It was so amazing that it inspired me in a way that human nature and existence cohabit deep within us; the desire and need to explore, to create new and wonderful technology, and to enjoy the greatness that humans can accomplish!

LIB2205ARCH2205 Learning Places, SP2016 AlmeidaMontgomery

This special topics course offers an interdisciplinary approach to investigating our built environment using a case study focused on a specific place each semester. This course combines physical examination with information research and data collection using methodologies developed in multiple disciplines. Students from a variety of departments engage in on-site exploration and in-depth research of a location in New York City.

My Projects

Undergraduate Research

Undergraduate Research

Realizing the value of the research experience at the undergraduate level, this project is committed to fostering research opportunities for City Tech students. Faculty and students can use this project as a place to share announcements about research opportunities, as well as a place to offer information about the experiences students and faculty have had in their research endeavors. A handbook on effective mentoring, developed by the Undergraduate Research Committee, is currently available for download.

CUNY Service Corps

CUNY Service Corps

The CUNY Service Corps will mobilize CUNY students, faculty and staff to work on projects that improve the short and long-term civic, economic and environmental sustainability of New York City and of its residents and communities. The program’s goals are three-fold: for students to make a meaningful difference through service while gaining valuable real-world work experience, earning a wage, and where appropriate, receiving college credit; for faculty members and staff, through their work with students in the program, to have additional opportunities to apply their expertise to addressing many of the city’s key challenges; and for residents, communities, and project sponsors to realize concrete benefits as a result of CUNY Service Corps projects.

Honors Scholars Program

Honors Scholars Program

The Honors Scholars Program at New York City College of Technology is dedicated to providing academically gifted students with the opportunity to develop their intellectual potential.
