Why did you choose ASU?
Technological Entrepreneurship and Management was the best online program out there. The day I signed up for this degree program I knew it was the right path for me and only wish it would have happened 20 years earlier. I don’t think they had a program like this 20 years ago.

Technology, entrepreneurship, innovation and engineering are all areas of high interest for me. I have great interest in starting up several businesses in the next few years. This program was perfect for setting me on to the path necessary to being a successful entrepreneur in the next stage of my life.

What was a memorable moment at ASU for you?
Completing my last assignment on the last day of class was the most memorable moment for me. It wasn’t easy getting here.

Can you name a professor that was instrumental in helping you grow?
Lecturer “Señor” Aram Chomina-Chavez and Lecturer Jason Bronowitz were the most helpful to me, however all were very instrumental in helping me grow.

What are your plans after graduation?
Continue my career as a senior global program manager. Maybe move to being a director of program management. Start up companies in the medical services industries and look at manufacturing opportunities.
