Aidan Lovelace

Aspiring Mechanical Engineer

Welcome to my homepage! Whether you’re a friend, recruiter, or coworker, feel free to take a look around. This website serves three purposes—an interactive resume, a portfolio of my work, and a place to show off my fun hobby projects.

So who is this guy?

I’m currently a junior at Lipscomb University, where I’m pursuing my passion for Mechanical Engineering. My journey here took an unexpected turn—I initially set out to become a doctor but soon realized my heart was in creating things. Whether it’s woodworking, machining, or tinkering with micro-electric vehicles, I find pure joy in bringing ideas to life. It was while working on my electric mountainboard that I had my “aha” moment and decided to switch majors. Since then, I’ve seen a steady improvement in my grades and have had the opportunity to apply my engineering knowledge to exciting projects. I’m thrilled to be on this mechanical engineering journey and look forward to exploring new avenues in innovation and design.
