Fun Fact

I grew up in Cincinnati, Ohio where chili doesn’t have beans and it’s served on spaghetti and hot dogs.

Engineering was a natural attraction for me. As a kid I was obsessed with rollercoasters and good at math.

I received my jazz performance minor on upright bass while doing my bachelor’s in civil engineering.
