Why did you choose ESTEEM?

I chose ESTEEM because I wanted the code I write to be something more meaningful than just code. ESTEEM and the Idea Center are full of people who want to change the world. I came here to find a place where I can apply my skills with purpose.

What is your Capstone Project and why are you excited about it?

This capstone project involves developing a market strategy for WowYow AI’s innovative markerless motion capture algorithm. The technology is set to revolutionize the film, gaming, and entertainment industries by replacing the costly and complex traditional methods with a simple, AI-powered solution. This project will allow the student to have the opportunity to merge technology and business strategy, while directly impacting a product that has the potential to democratize 3D animation creation. This unique intersection of technology, market research, and strategy makes it a truly groundbreaking project.

What do you hope to do after ESTEEM?

After ESTEEM, I am currently not sure what I want to do, but whatever it is I hope it’s something that helps some group of people somewhere in the world.

What do you like to do in your free time?

In my free time I like to crochet. I also enjoy sleeping, playing video games, and watching detective TV shows. But crocheting is the most productive hobby I have, so I try to do it more.

I have a loud cat.
