FIRST JOB AFTER ROSE-HULMAN?

Mechanical Development Engineer in Light Duty Diesel for Cummins in Columbus, Indiana.

MOST VALUABLE LESSON YOU LEARNED ON THAT JOB?

Persistence, determination, and hard work solve more problems on any given day than sheer intelligence, so when the inconceivable occurs, dig in your heels, figure it out, and get it done.

MOST MEMORABLE ROSE-HULMAN PROFESSOR?

While I enjoy many wonderful memories of my Rose-Hulman professors, I fondly remember Dr. Thom Adams [Mechanical Engineering] for his extensive talents. He made difficult material accessible with his positive attitude and patient demeanor, while also challenging us to be analytical, thorough, and logical. Going above and beyond, Dr. Thom also actively participated in the Rose-Hulman community. In particular, I distinctly remember his incredible guitar performances in Engineers in Concert and his fantastic skills as a playwright for the Drama Club's 24-Hour Play Festival. I found it inspiring to learn from someone that not only taught interesting topics, but was also a genuinely interesting person.

IDEAL WEEKEND?

The ideal weekend starts with a brief run, a cup of fresh coffee, and a local newspaper. After that, I would leave home with my wonderful wife, Emily, to explore our downtown neighborhood for some combination of local markets, festivals, art, music, and live theatre.

STAR TREK OR STAR WARS?

Star Wars.

WHAT IS THE NERDIEST THING YOU DO?

I find entirely too much joy in reading the daily news and watching documentaries.

ADVICE TO INCOMING ROSE-HULMAN STUDENTS?

Get involved in the Rose-Hulman community, find your passions, and make a positive impact. Not only will you make your community a better place, but you'll meet some of the best people along the way.
