Q: What inspired you to become an engineer? Were you always interested in technology? If so, why? If not, when did you become interested and why?

A: I always liked mathematics and physics, which were the two disciplines where I first began to enjoy the challenge of solving practical problems. Throughout college, I was fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with enthusiastic advisors that showed me how engaging and exciting a career in engineering could be.
