I just got back from Africa leaving Oceania and Antarctica the last two continents I have yet to visit. I plan on hitting up Australia to dive the Great Barrier Reef by the end of this year.

I’m currently an Operations Supervisor at a nuclear power plant in the Midwest for Exelon Corporation. I get to do some amazing work for a company that is environmentally conscious and has provided me the opportunity to really flex my leadership skills.
I studied Nuclear, Plasma, and Radiological Engineering at UIUC where I also did research on plasma and fusion technology. Nowadays, I listen to philosophy podcasts and watch online lectures on programming. I also just finished applying to business school and hope to be networking and developing management skills by this time next year.
