Loyola Marymount University, 2020
Mechanical Engineering

Why I chose ESTEEM:

I came to ESTEEM to learn the fundamental business and entrepreneurial skills that will elevate my engineering degree to the next level.

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

My capstone project entails working to bring OEM joining and fastening solutions into new and emerging markets. This allows me to learn about industries such as solar and wind power, water purification and distribution, electric vehicles and 5G telecommunication infrastructure. I hope that at the end of this project I can assist my company by embedding their existing products into these industries, potentially develop new products, or even suggest an acquisition that will facilitate further innovation and development in this company.

What I hope to do after ESTEEM:

After ESTEEM, I hope to find a role where I can implement my engineering background while incorporating the new business skills that I have learned through the ESTEEM program. I want to find an established company with potential growth that I can help facilitate and eventually reach the C-suite!

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

When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my friends, capturing fun moments through photography and videography, and exploring new areas around South Bend.
