Professionally, what I appreciated most was interacting with data: financial, demographic, etc. I felt the most satisfied when I was given a task and had to create a solution. Working at a small organization with limited resources meant I was often constructing processes, reports, and other documents from the ground up. I utilized the available technology to reach the highest efficiency I could achieve.
As one might expect, academically I’ve most enjoyed the courses where we as students dive into numbers, data, and spreadsheets. I appreciate the classes that require a keen eye for detail and a precise end product. Through my coursework, I have been able to connect back to what I accomplished at my job and can see how there is a great deal available to accomplish so much more, and doing it all efficiently and effectively! I look forward to advancing this knowledge and applying it to my future career.
Personally, I’m a simple man with relatively simple pleasures. My biggest personal interests involve food and drink, in terms of both nutrition and indulgence, as well as physical activity. I enjoy trying new cuisines and drinks, and have developed quite the discerning, expansive, and expensive palate. At the same time, I enjoy learning about healthful eating and trying to establish good habits. I balance out the calorie consumption with activities, my favorites being rec-sports and group HIIT classes. I’m rather competitive and these satisfy that drive quite well!
