What is an important skill that you learned at STS?
Ticket workflow, it’s actually very elaborate in how a ticket gets passed from person to person and I think it applies to other jobs as well.

What is your favorite thing about STS?
Obviously, the people… I met soo many friends that I would have never gotten the opportunity to meet while at WashU if it wasn’t for STS.

What is one secret talent that you possess?
Office politics.

What are your favorite activities outside of STS?
I’ve been taking care of plants (he’s a plant daddy), I also like endlessly scrolling Reddit, cooking, and long walks.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
Enjoying my fully vested stock options hopefully.

How often do you eat out a week?
I eat out about 4 times a week Dx.

What is your favorite piece of tech (may or may not own)?
My favorite piece of technology that I own is my Logitech MX master 3, a good mouse and keyboard are so underrated, and they come in handy for those fat excel sheets.

What is in store for you after WashU?
I accepted a Project Manager position with Epic in Madison, Wisconsin starting in April 2021.
