CNC Machinist Apprentice

“Growing up, I liked to take things apart and explore how things work. Because of this, I knew that I wanted to pursue a hands-on college experience that would also lead to a successful career path. Having been inspired by my dad’s manufacturing background and emboldened by my natural desire to be a maker, it was a natural choice for me.

My manufacturing career has made a difference in my life by giving me the experience that I desired while also affording me an opportunity to grow personally and professionally. In particular, working with Crafts Technology and Hyperion Materials & Technology has taught me to express my inner creative person by providing me with an opportunity in machining to “reduce to practice” what is in someone’s mind or on a concept drawing. If you are a maker at heart, a rewarding manufacturing career is a lifeline to you as you develop and grow. Additionally, my manufacturing career started at Harper College and I have them to thank for helping me to build out my core skill set so that I could enter the workplace with the level of skills, productivity and confidence that employers seek in candidates.”
