What attracted you to the Keller Center?
The Keller Center serves as a great resource for students who want to get exposure to areas of entrepreneurship. As an engineer, the Keller Center gave me opportunities to see the role that technology and startups play in the corporate, political, and academic worlds.
How are you involved with the Keller Center?
I was involved in PSIP during my sophomore summer, as a Hardware Intern for a IoT safety start-up called Kinetic, in New York City. During the academic year, I've taken a number of courses offered by the Keller Center, including EGR395: Venture Capital and the Finance of Innovation, and EGR491: High-Tech Entrepreneurship. I am also working towards the certificate in Technology and Society, offered by the Keller Center and Center for Information Technology Policy.
What are your academic or career goals?
I'd like my career to be at the intersection of the technology and business worlds. Currently, I think the best expression of that is as a Product Manager for a growing technology company. In the future, I'd love be be a leader in the tech space, whether that means leading an organization, becoming an investor, and/or becoming a mentor for others.
