Class of 2020-2021

University of Portland, 2020
Mechanical Engineering

Why I chose ESTEEM:

I wanted to apply my engineering skills to people-focused projects, and ESTEEM offered hands-on experience at the intersection of business and technology.

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

I am working with Neighborhood Sun, a small community solar energy provider. I will help the company develop a new product line and roll out an improved software system as it expands into several new states. The green energy industry is taking off, and I am excited to help drive its growth!

What I hope to do after ESTEEM:

My current goal is to help share energy and/or aerospace innovations with broad audiences. Drone delivery services are exciting, but I'm keeping my eyes open!

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

I like to climb, read, and play piano. I just bought a bike here, and I've spent a few hours cleaning it up in preparation for its 50th birthday next month.
