Why I chose ESTEEM:

I chose ESTEEM to grow in a fast-paced environment that prepares me with the skills and proper mindset to launch a meaningful business. Specifically, the vast network and accessible resources allow for quick testing and prototyping of wild ideas that aim to solve important problems.

My capstone project and why I am excited about it:

My capstone project is with SRAM, a manufacturer of innovative bicycle components, in developing a line of bicycle computers. In this project, I will have to opportunity to engage with competitive cyclists at exciting events and races throughout the country. By understanding cyclists’ experiences, I can help design a bicycle computer that inspires them to reach their full potential.

What I hope to do after ESTEEM:

After ESTEEM, I plan on starting a company that focuses on promoting healthy lifestyles, by focusing on either fitness, nutrition, or getting people outdoors.

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

I enjoy running and racing throughout the Midwest. I also like to go camping and finding local trails to explore.
