My name is Jonathan R Gross* but I go by Jack. I’m an aerospace/mechanical engineer with a passion for spaceflight, transportation, and power generation. I came to California for grad school at USC, where I received a masters in aerospace engineering with a focus on fluid dynamics. Since then I’ve been working in the aerospace and transportation industries.
I’m originally from Pittsburgh Pennsylvania, where I grew up in the neighborhood of Squirrel Hill. In addition to my professional interests, I’m also enthusiastic about tabletop role playing games, surfing, and craft projects from electronics to costuming.
*There’s no period after the ‘R’ because R is not an initial. My middle name is simply the letter R. There is a weird story behind that but I do not wish to go into it here.
