TELL US YOUR JOURNEY AND THE STEPS YOU TOOK TO CHOOSE YOUR CURRENT CAREER.
I knew I was good at all things math-related, so I thought I would give engineering a chance. While at Purdue in my freshman engineering lecture, I heard a professor give a talk about interdisciplinary engineering, which included a major in Acoustical Engineering that sounded interesting. Upon graduation, I sent a resume to every consultant/company listed in the NCAC Directory nationwide, and had a handful of interviews and a few job offers. My advisor at Purdue said, “Well if you are going to be a broke recent college grad, why not be broke in California?” Best advice I have ever received.
WHAT MOTIVATES YOU TO WORK HARD?
My wife and daughters.
WHO IS/WAS YOUR MENTOR?
My parents. While they might not have the technical knowledge I use daily, they taught me how to be a considerate, hardworking person, which is much more valuable than anything that can be learned in a class or manual.
