My dream job is to be an entrepreneur. Seeing an idea through from start to company, defining my own ideal job, and responding to disasters are the ultimate engineering challenges.

I want to be the first person on Mars—or at least on the first mission to Mars. I’ve always wanted a career in space, so I majored in physics and astronomy at Vassar and added engineering through the dual-degree program at Thayer. I think there definitely will be a mission to Mars in my lifetime and I want to be on it.
