My first career path decision, to major in Computer Engineering at UMD, foreshadows my career strengths and passion - technology and solving problems. I am detail oriented and resourceful, which help me attack both low-level and high-level problems. I always consider how I can make my solution more modular (time permitting), because there is nothing more satisfying than knowing that my solution will come in handy in more situations than originally intended. A part of me would love to write regular expressions all day.

I am also personable, and enjoy talking to, becoming close to and learning from everyone. I have a strong business sense from undergraduate courses, my master's program and career experience.
