Spencer Power Systems Engineer Electron traffic controller by week, rock climber by weekend.


Currently living in California working as a power systems engineer and trying to learn as much about the fundamentals of the grid in a dynamic enegy landscape. I nurtured a fascination with the electric grid and the integration of renewables during a stint in a power systems research lab, and now get to work for one of the most forward-thinking electric utilities.

At the University of Michigan, I (somehow) won prizes in two hackathons, was mentored by reknown researchers, joined a community of creatives (Shift), and enjoyed pushing my physical limits through rock climbing and triathlons.

Lately I've been trying to supplement work and climbing with yoga and Vipassana meditation.
