The real me:

I like to think I'm a pretty relaxed dude. In my spare time you'll usually see me at my computer typing away for some reason or another, or outside shooting baskets. If I'm lucky and get a long weekend I like to spend it with my family in Wisconsin, my home away from home. One big thing I think that sets me apart is the fact that I work at a furniture store, something that most students, let alone Chemical Engineering majors can say. I'll tell anyone and everyone that my days working at RESTYLE are some of the most fun, because it is so different from any of my classes, or other activities. Plus you meet the most amazing people.

I constantly hail that the best thing that has ever happened to me was being part of the IIT Boeing Scholars Academy. It's why Project LEAD is around today, it's the reason that I have my job at RESTYLE, and my internship. I met some of the greatest people ever there, and have made some great connections.
