• The Short Story

    Our world is on the cusp of generational change and I plan to make the leap of innovation with it.

    Believing in a cause greater than yourself is a profound concept. Great causes inspire action, and action delivers results. I believe in creativity and big ideas, while helping others. This is what inspired me early on to pursue a degree in engineering. I soon realized though, that a technical background has to be balanced with business acumen. This realization motivated me to then pursue an MBA where I learned it isn't hard to move ideas into something actionable. In the reality between ideas and results are lessons learned and moments of triumph. Also forged along the way are lasting relationships that connect us throughout the world.


    I choose to align my experience in engineering and business development to create products and services that inspire people to dream big.

    Suez Environment

    The execution of engineering contracts relies in large part on detailed technical drawings that help visualize a project's scope. As a young designer in the engineering department I helped deploy the company’s first smart piping and instrumentation design system known as AutoPLANT. Deployed in one year's time, I led the company to creating its first intelligent series of engineering drawings for a capital contract.
    The software required administration and maintenance of an internal database, which I was solely responsible for. The scope of this project also allowed me to aid in the direction of a contract employee for software changes relating to the organization of engineering data. The task of training other engineers in the firm resided as my responsibility as well.

    With a strong technical background and the ability to think critically, my degree in Electrical Engineering taught me more than how to crunch numbers. I learned to not be intimidated by large, complex problems. I learned that time and resources can fix almost anything. I also learned that by solving the parts of a problem, you can always come to a full solution.
