University of Notre Dame, 2018
Computer Science

Why I chose ESTEEM:

I chose ESTEEM to gain the confidence and know-how necessary to apply my newly learned skills in innovative ways to fix real world problems. This final chapter in my academic career at Notre Dame is the perfect transition to jump start my career and expand my horizons.

My capstone thesis project and why I'm excited about it:

My thesis project is with GameFinder365. We are creating an online platform that enables teams to organize scrimmages or games against similarly skilled teams within a specific geographic area. I look forward to fully developing a business model for our service, as well as learning how to create thorough financial models. I am extremely excited about this project because it is a blend of my two passions, software development and basketball.

What I hope to do after ESTEEM:

Following ESTEEM, I plan to spend a year or two working as a software developer, either for an established technology company or a startup. In this position, I hope to build relationships and gain the experience necessary to successfully pursue my own projects.

What I like to do when I'm not working:

In my free time I enjoy playing basketball, discovering new music, watching TV shows & movies, and hanging with friends.
