About

My name is Jacob Calvert and I am an Engineer.

I currently work for Wind River Systems as a Field Application Engineer in the Aerospace & Defense sector. I graduated in May 2016 from The University of Alabama with a degree in Electrical Engineering and Mathematics with a focus in Embedded Systems. My future plans include the possibility of graduate school at the University of Alabama or elsewhere. You can find out more about my professional and academic profile by downloading my résumé or if you have specific questions you can contact me by clicking the contact link above.

My personal interests include music, camping, fishing, recreational programming, and a ton more. I have been playing music since age 8 and I currently play several instruments including guitar, piano, drums, mandolin, banjo, and recently, lap steel guitar. I am a huge fan of Alabama Athletics, especially Alabama Football. I love to listen to music as I work and my musical tastes vary widely from mainstream Pop to Country & Western to Dubstep. I grew up on a farm in a very small town called County Line, AL and attended high school at the closest public school in Blount County, Locust Fork High School.

I am extremely self-motivated and work best when I am stretching my abilities for a goal. I love a good challenge. I love to program for fun and always have several projects in progress. Check out my blog or the projects pages for my current projects.
