FIRST JOB AFTER ROSE-HULMAN?
After leaving Rose-Hulman, I joined a small logistics company in Indianapolis as a Process Engineer. My main focus was improving processes and efficiency throughout the company's transportation and warehouse facilities.
MOST VALUABLE LESSON YOU LEARNED ON THAT JOB?
The most valuable lesson I learned in my first job was the ability to ask smart, relevant questions. In most technology positions a key factor that is often neglected is communication among teams. Being able to ask questions and get colleagues to understand where you are coming from is essential.
MOST MEMORABLE ROSE-HULMAN PROFESSOR?
Dr. Julia Williams [English]. Mostly because we both were featured in an awesome Homecoming film, "Return of the Tiger: a Homecoming Film," produced by the Rose-Hulman Film Club in 2004.

STAR TREK OR STAR WARS?
No question. Star Wars!
WHAT IS THE NERDIEST THING YOU DO?
I'm a total Lego geek. I keep all of my Legos organized in tackle boxes, and have a “Lego room” specifically set up for building!
