Why I chose ESTEEM: I came to ESTEEM because I worked with entrepreneurship students as an undergrad and saw that pairing science and business makes a powerful team. I knew ESTEEM would attract skilled and driven people so that's where I needed to be.

My capstone thesis project and why I’m excited about it: For my thesis, I'm working with Red Rabbit Automation Services to automate local small business manufacturers. I'll create the pricing model for their very first customers and develop the business model. I'm excited to be working with experienced mentor in a brand new company, and I'm proud to help local small businesses.

What I hope to do after ESTEEM: After ESTEEM I hope to be working for a small startup. Whether I'm a sole founder, co-founder, or employee #5 I want to be working with a driven group of people to solve a problem I'm passionate about.

What I like to do when I’m not working in Innovation Park: In my free time I enjoy riding my bike and swimming.
