Anthony Spadafore

Mechanical Co-Team Lead

Hello! My name is Anthony Spadafore. I am currently a senior at Arizona State University pursuing a BSE in Mechanical Engineering with a secondary focus in Electrical. A good friend of mine introduced me to Hyperloop and asked me if I was interested in it. I jumped on the occasion to be part of a team creating new technology. Improving and creating a new form of energy efficient transportation was something I could not pass up. Being a part of this project will help me utilize the skills that I have learned during my time here at ASU. While I am not focusing on my studies I like to play fighting games competitively and work towards improving my skills in them as well.
