Describe yourself in three words: Curious, passionate and hardworking

Where to find you on a Sunday afternoon: I’m a Vikings fan so I watch football, but during the off-season I’m usually outside somewhere hiking or fishing. Why engineering: I was an English major as a freshman. I looked at the Engineering New Student Guide and I liked the classes for this major. My grandpa was an engineer and was a pilot in World War II. I also like the show “The X-Files” in which Dana Scully is written as a positive role model for women and I like solving problems. Best thingabout your computer engineeringmajor: I loved the diversity of what I studied. I also loved the small class sizes and the access to the professors. To me, computer engineering is the best as I get to do both software and electrical engineering. What are you doing now: I’m currently at 3M in the Data Science and Analytics lab working as a software developer.
