About Me: "I'm from the Midwest, but I fully consider New England and Dartmouth to be a second home. I have had so many invaluable experiences there, ranging from being a member of the hockey team, being a leader in my fraternity, immersing myself in both liberal arts and technical studies, and working for exciting local companies. I am a person that is constantly looking for challenges and I did not need to look far for them over the years that I was at Dartmouth."
Why I Chose the M.E.M.: "The M.E.M. program was a natural fit for me after I completed my undergraduate studies at Dartmouth. The academic energy and passion at Thayer is a perfect complement to the Dartmouth community I had come to love, and the opportunity to supplement my engineering knowledge with world-class business and management courses at Tuck School of Business was too good to pass up. Before entering the program, I spoke to friends in the program who all raved about the opportunities for team projects, the diverse backgrounds of their colleagues, and the strong industry connections that were available to them. The M.E.M. has all of the features that I believe will make me successful and well-rounded in the professional workforce."
