Wabash College, 2021

Why I chose ESTEEM ?

I chose ESTEEM because I wanted to engage with real challenges. The ESTEEM program allowed me to challenge myself with academic rigor and real world business problems.

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

I am working with Johnson Controls to establish technology and channel partner relationships within their OpenBlue division. I am excited to connect innovative technology and enterprise sales relationships in the same arena.

What I hope to do after ESTEEM ?

After ESTEEM, I hope to build a career in enterprise sales, channel partnerships, or technical sales. The end goal is to be a coach for startup technology companies in Chicago.

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

I like to run and golf when I am not working. I enjoy being outdoors and working on DIY projects.


I studied rhetoric as an undergrad at an all male liberal arts college, Wabash College. The ESTEEM program has allowed me to have a mix of liberal arts "critical thinking" while building a firm technical skillset.
