About Me

Hi there! I’m Juan Carrano from Savannah, Georgia. I am of Venezuelan-Italian descent and have grown up living in North Carolina, New York, Japan, Alabama, and Georgia. I am a fourth-year student at the Georgia Institute of Technology pursuing a bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering with an added concentration in Automation and Robotics. I am also currently working as an engineering co-op for Gulfstream Aerospace Corporation.

I am most passionate about work in aerospace, mechanical design, and manufacturing. My commitment to making a positive impact on individuals fuels my passion to come up with innovative ideas and excel in this team-oriented career field. I have extensive experience with CAD, manufacturing, and testing, as well as research with two different labs working with precision machining and 3D-Bio manufacturing, respectively. I am also a member of the Payloads team for the NASA Student Launch Initiative and work as a Prototyping Instructor at the Invention Studio (student-run makerspace) on campus.

In my free time, I love to play basketball, hike, and work on side projects apart from school (like learning new coding languages to make this website or building things!). One of my more recent hobbies is high-powered rocketry. I am passionate about rockets and work with friends on designing, building and launching our own rockets. I am also an avid traveler and I love to explore and experience different cultures throughout the world. During the summer of 2019, I participated in the Georgia Tech Lorraine study abroad program in Metz, France and got to visit over 10 countries! I am always looking for future projects and opportunities to learn more!
