Class of 2020

I'm passionate about  technology and how it can benefit society. I'm interested in future tech that helps connect society to provide new opportunities for everyone to communicate and commute, helping breakdown barriers among age, geographic location, and income. Prior to attending Ross, I started my career in the Automotive industry where I had several different roles and responsibilities. My first role was a Product Engineer at FCA where I was responsible for several different component designs and developments. Shortly after I started my career, I went back to school for a Master of Engineering, this was also a part-time program. A few years into my career I was selected to be an expat for an oversees assignment in Italy as a Resident Engineer where I was responsible for product process development and quality. I worked and live in Italy for two and a half years. Upon my return, I switched companies to General Motors where I'm now a Senior Product Engineer with responsibilities over several products acting as a project manager. My background has been mainly technical and I wanted to branch out to development a broader skill set, this is why I joined Ross.I'm also on the Auto/Mobility Club board as VP of partnerships, my responsibilities are to help bridge the connections between Ross and other schools/departments within University of Michigan.
