Hometown: Aurora, Illinois, USA

Title: NLT-LTE Lab Engineer. Day to Day: Resolve all lab issues from software to hardware requests for lab users. Program SIM cards and cell phones for lab usage such as: monitoring simulated calls through different areas with different specifications and public safety testing. Also, maintaining the equipment on the 4G/LTE network and installing software upgrades on them when necessary.
Why Tippie: I chose Tippie because out of the schools that I had been accepted to it was going to give me the most opportunities for my future. Also, after meeting the faculty in the MBA program and attending Advance Weekend it was apparent to me that it was the best fit for me MBA-wise. Furthermore, with the challenge that I know the program will give me, I know that I will learn a great deal and have the ability to meet some great, influential people.
Interesting fact about me: I have a massive collection of Lego sets (over 100) that has been building ever since I was 5 years old.
