Why did you choose Oregon Tech?

I chose Oregon Tech because it is renowned for its Software Engineering degree, is one of the most affordable schools in America, and it only takes five minutes to find your own personal piece of nature in Klamath Falls.

What do you like best about your major?

My majors are incredibly flexible. With Software I could do anything from working with hospitals configuring monitoring technology to developing the next big video game. The possibilities are endless and that is incredibly exciting.

What would be your dream job in your major?

One day I am going to be a member of a development team that programs an exoskeleton to help the paralyzed walk.

What’s your favorite thing to do off campus?

I am a big fan of movies and the theatre is between my home and campus!

What’s your most memorable moment on campus?

I was sitting in a lab by myself with a program outline in front of me my sophomore year. For the first time since I had first come to Oregon Tech I didn't panic and say 'I can't do this'. Instead, I turned on the computer and tackled it piece by piece. To see yourself grow so abruptly is an amazing thing.
