Why I chose ESTEEM:

I could never really fit into a specific discipline throughout my academic career, and was looking for something where I could utilize my multidisciplinary passion. That is when I found ESTEEM!

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

I am working with Mindful Projects LLC to develop a wearable-based application that will revolutionize the way we attack weight loss and overall health. Rather than the conventional method of counting calories, it will estimate your CO2-exhalation for any activity you do, and the insulin load for any food you consume. I am excited to be in the midst of an early startup, and to improve the health of the world's population.

What I hope to do after ESTEEM:

After ESTEEM I am planing on joining a consulting firm for a few years, and then eventually join an early startup or start something on my own. Depending on my success with the projects in ESTEEM, I might jump on the startup-train a little earlier.

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

When I am not working on innovative ideas I am kite-surfing. When the winter comes, I am planning on finding an empty cornfield somewhere to Snow-kite :)
