I was born and grew up in a lower middle class family in Casper, Wyoming. It was a beautiful place to grow up, very safe, and has a wide range of outdoor activities from hunting, fishing, hiking, skiing and snowboarding, snowmobiling, lakes, rivers, mountains, and everything in between, but it was always way too quiet for me. I knew that I would get out, see the world, and live in a big city. I was admitted to and began attending the University of Southern California in 2008, and I've been in Los Angeles ever since. I completed my degree in Mechanical Engineering while managing to study abroad twice, a summer in Paris followed immediately by a semester in Australia. The fact that I graduated on a Friday and started with my current company of 7 years on the following Monday is a testament to my hard work, dedication, and loyalty.
