About the puppy
In school, I was a very good cookie. In fact, I was so good that I ended up graduating in the top 2% of my high school class. I went on to earn the Presidential Scholarship because of my academic success in the Chemical Engineering program at Lehigh University. That netted me a free Masters of Engineering in Entrepreneurship, and a fantastic job as an Engineer at W. L. Gore & Associates, one of the best companies to work for (per Fortune magazine). I was learning a ton, meeting wonderful people, traveling periodically (including to Germany) for work, and generally living the good life! Ask anyone, I had it made.
But, I didn’t feel that way.
I realized that my heart simply wasn’t into what I was spending almost 50% of my waking hours doing. In February of 2019, I quit my cushy job as an engineer to go and explore my passion: perspective.
I made it 24 years into my life before I truly started to introspect and ask myself what I wanted to be when I “grew up”. And, even then, it took me 2 more years to actually take the next step.
THAT’S CRAZY! 26 years?!?!
Obviously, life is a marathon. It’s an adventure in which one experience leads to the next and I honestly don’t really want to know what I’ll be doing in 3 years or 5 years.
So, due to my experiences to this point, my passion is to help people find their passions earlier on in their lives. Like, much earlier than I did. My idea is to build an educational system or a tool or something that better facilitates a person’s interest and skillset exploration.
Instead of baking cookie cutter cookies that are built for a society that has since ceased to exist, I hope to help fill our world with lifelong learners that will be motivated to continue to explore the never ending universe we call home.
