WHY NSBE: I first became involved with NSBE in undergrad at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) in the Upstate Zone of Region 1. There I served as Academic Excellence Chair & Programs Chair. My interest in NSBE grew tenfold while at my first National Convention in Las Vegas. I was amazed to see the spirit and pride of thousands of chapters around the country all with the same mission in mind. Now that I’ve been out of school for almost 10 years, I can say that the mission never stops.

FIELD: Civil/Structural Engineering and Construction Management – I spent the first 6 years of my career doing structural design for buildings in the NYC area, and I’ve been working as a project manager at a construction management company since August 2019. I am a licensed professional engineer in the state of New York.

HOME: NYC born and raised.

FAVORITE: My favorite international trip was my 2016 visit to Taiwan. Luckily, I was with friends who spoke the local language(s) so the trip felt very authentic.
