Hello. I'm Christopher covert, a 23-year- old aerospace engineer who studies control theory at stanford university.
I am a student.
I am a student at Stanford University studying aeronautics and astronautics now, but it wasn't an easy road to get here: in getting both my high school diploma in York, PA and my B.S. at Penn State, I was given the honor of graduating at the top of my class.
I like projects.
I was also given the opportunity to lead a few fun projects in the recent years including the former Google Lunar XPrize team, Lunar Lion, which aimed to put a student-built lunar lander on the moon, and an international sailplane racing competitor, Project Zephyrus, which aimed to build and fly a full-scale composite human-powered aircraft.
I like to do a lot.
In my free time, I have been published in IEEE, given a TED talk, and won a hackathon. Given that I also like to sleep, I guess I can safely say that I try to cram as much fun into life as possible.
I like adventure.
I have always been guided by either my two feet or the two wheels on my bike, and it has led me to quite a few adventures. From climbing mountains to hopping between trains, I like to see the unseen and explore the unexplored.
I like photography.
If a picture is worth a thousand words, I have enough books to fill the Library of Congress. I shoot mostly from my cellphone (those cameras are getting pretty good), but I have used just about every type of camera there is.
I like technology.
Flying drones, building websites, living in Silicon Valley; I like tech. Easy as that.
