Class of 2021-2022
Utah State University, 2021
Why I chose ESTEEM ?
I studied mechanical engineering and computer science for my undergrad and loved the technical aspect, but still wanted to stay close to people. I found that coding all day on projects I wasn't personally invested in felt empty. That's why ESTEEM gave me an excellent opportunity to mix the technical and personal. I find that now I have the network and know-how to address problems that matter.
My capstone project and why I'm excited about it ?
I have the opportunity to work with Flagship Management. I will be conducting stakeholder and customer interviews throughout the year, along with my own research, to better understand cybersecurity in healthcare. I'm excited because it combines tech with an industry that I'm not as familiar with, healthcare. There are many amazing people and groups that work intelligently to solve the legacy and new problems. It's a rewarding and fascinating project that pushes me to learn and try new angles to find a product and solution.
What I hope to do after ESTEEM ?
I am very interested in Project Management, consulting, and professional services in software and tech. I would love to one day start my own business, but right now, I want to acquire more experience to address problems that may exist.
What I like to do when I'm not working ?
I spend time working out, being with my Wife, making software projects and website, cooking, climbing, and snowboarding.
