Learn more about me
Welcome to my page! I'm an engineer who just likes to build things. Rockets, rovers, drones, apps, websites. I have a wide range of interests and experience that brings surprising insight to the projects I'm on.
I was born in Toledo, OH and graduated from University of Cincinnati where I majored in Aerospace Engineering. While at UC I was part of the Autonomous Systems Lab where we designed a robotic chassis that interfaced with a Mitsubishi industrial robotic arm used to study satellite capture techniques and remote brain surgery. I was a "Rocket Surgeon" for a short time. This is also when I started coding, not just for school projects but for research with the university as I would often get requests from professors who have an old Fortran code they want to revive.
The University of Cincinnati has a mandatory co-op system where you are required to complete a certain number of internships before you graduate. I did all my internships with the Air Force Research Laboratory at both Edwards AFB, CA and Wright-Patterson AFB, OH. My focus during this time was amassing expertise in Computational Fluid Dynamics and the regimes I studied was external flow, steady-state, internal combustion, and hypersonics. This is also the time I wrote a lot more software because sometimes you have to write your own solvers.
I'm now focusing on software development. I have taught myself Python, C#, SQL, Bash, HTML, CSS, and Fortran preferring to work in Python, C#, and SQL. I've built websites, converted excel toolkits to Python toolkits, written desktop applications in C#, and revived Fortran code for current computers. Currently, I'm studying cloud technology (AWS) and data analytics. I'm always learning and improving.
It was a privilege to manage Chris during our time together at Conwed. Always eager to assist, with excellent analytics, a fresh perspective, and a willingness to apply himself wherever he could, Chris proved to be a valuable team asset. For whatever position he's considered, I'm certain he'll apply his talents wholeheartedly.
It is my pleasure to strongly recommend Chris McGlown. In my years of human resource management I have seen many young professionals in many career fields come and go. Chris is one individual I have worked with who uniquely stands out. During our time together, Chris displayed great talents in engineering and software development. When we first met, I was immediately impressed with Chris, but during the time worked together, his understanding of manufacturing and …

The purpose of this project is to create a toolkit that Livingspace LLC customer service can use to create custom orders for Livingspace sunrooms.
This calculator can be used to determine the design properties of various sunroom design styles given certain parameters as input. This is based off a project I worked on for my previous company.
A project to create a central repository of your work history and experiences that you control. Keep track of where you were employed, how long you spent at an organization, what your duties and accomplishments were, and what skills you gained.
This program was create to be a simple playlist builder. I recently got an mp3 player and didn't really like using the full scale media manager programs available in Linux. There was really no need for all the bells and whistles just to organize a playlist. I also had some …
This project is a demonstration of a simple leave management system build using .Net 6 and ASP.NET Core. It demonstrates CRUD functionality and is intended as a quick showcase of the author's current proficiency in web application development.
This is the repository of my personal site written in Python using the Django framework. The site will be expanded over time as I improve my capabilities in Python and Django. I plan to add a blog to it at a later date.
