From a young age, Niniv appeared destined to become a controls engineer. He not only mastered computer coding at a young age but also dismantled everything in sight and put it back together. After graduating, he returned to work in his native Central Valley in the hopes of bringing more engineering jobs to the agricultural-based Valley. In less than 5 years, Niniv went from intern to cofounder of an engineering firm.
FUN FACT: Niniv grew up on a small almond orchard.
