Why I chose ESTEEM ?

I chose ESTEEM because I wanted to grow from my strictly technical background and immerse myself in a strong culture where I could think differently with high-performing individuals. I love the practical capstone experience and the rich diversity of the cohort.

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

I am working with Lenovo to design an innovative high power processor cooling solution for Workstation computers. My duties include technical research, modeling, prototyping, testing, analyzing cost/performance tradeoffs and customer research. This is an exciting opportunity to do great work with a highly regarded company.

What I hope to do after ESTEEM ?

After ESTEEM I hope to end up in a position on the forefront of technology in a collaborative environment. I love to work with people and solve big problems. Whether in a startup or a more established company, my goal is to have a diverse work experience and make a positive impact on the world.

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

In my free time I love to get outdoors with friends, photograph our good times, and appreciate the world around us. In the winter, I enjoy skiing fast. When summer comes around, I like to fish, camp, hike, swim, and sing songs around the campfire. Indoors, I appreciate music and have been practicing guitar.
