Bio: My mother used to describe the hardship of raising me as if she was trying to push a large, stubborn bull up the hill. None of her other children were like that. But it is because of her persistence with me that today, I have the freedom to explore career paths thru different technical industries like defense and the semiconductor industry. Raised in California, I received a BSEE and then a MS in MS&E. For me, the most rewarding investment is the opportunity to encourage a student who isn’t a gadgethead or a mathlete that there is still space at the engineering table and to not self-select out early.
Advice: Don’t just ragequit. Respawn instead.
