Give me a brief background on your career, where you’re from, and your favorite way to spend your free time.
I was born in New Jersey, but raised in the Saint Louis area! My favorite way to spend my free time is usually attending standup shows, longboarding, & hanging with my friends!
I started my career as a Process Improvement Engineer at AT&T. A lot of my work was aligned to the Change Management Business Practice. With those skills, I was able to move up to the Project Manager position for a ~$200M project where I would find inefficiencies and changes required for an optimal smooth transition of circuit installation for our client. I worked there for a year and a half before starting my PhD in Electrical Engineering. After finishing my Master’s degree, I decided to move away from my PhD and into consulting, and that is how I found Avionos!
