I created a photo story that shows the life of my husband, a student engineer. My pictures are in a specific order and they start by showing my husband as a student and employee first. As this project developed, I noticed little things about my husband’s day to day life that I hadn’t noticed before. I began to see little acts of love… from using my homemade ceramics that I crafted as a child to celebrating the accomplishments of our friends over dinners. Even though Jesse may spend the majority of his time enthralled in his work, I’m still a part of it. And as you can see, he is a part of my work too.
Jesse Nielsen, student engineer, can be seen through the reflection of his equipment on Nov. 29, 2015. Nielsen spends countless hours in school and at Intel where he works in a lab.
Nielsen calls for his wife to follow him on an adventure as he moves from one engineering class to another. He enjoys being followed around for pictures.
As you can see from the mud on his boots and the level of difficulty of the book in his hands, Nielsen works hard. He uses the outside light to help him stay awake while he studies during the day.
As the newest Intel employee, set to start Jan. 4, 2016, Nielsen looks toward the future toward the light.
Oregon Tech’s Wilsonville, OR satellite campus offers many educational opportunities to its students, including Nielsen.
Nielsen contemplates possible meanings to difficult text as he studies Laser Electronics around midnight on a school night.
Nielsen has many resources available at his disposal when he enters his Oregon Tech classroom in Wilsonville, OR. Featured here are cords and electronics used to assemble various devices.
Nielsen works in his stocking feet when he is in the comfort of his own home. This image shows how his life is bursting to spill over into his work.
On the evening of Nov. 30 2015, Nielsen relaxes at home with his black lab puppy Gotham, who is dressed up for the Christmas season.
A final image to show Nielsen as a regular guy who plays video games at home. Even when he’s relaxing, he’s working with electronics. This picture also shows that Nielsen values family and love.
