Hometown: Elgin, Illinois

Major: Geospatial Information Sciences
Expected Graduation Date: December 2020

Deciding on GIS

It was an easy choice for me, I am a seasoned traveler and geography has always been something I’ve been good at as well as interested in. Considering I have a strong IT background, that made picking GIS the simplest of things. 

My EPPS Success

The key to my success at UT Dallas so far has been taking notes and paying attention in the classroom and hitting the books outside the classroom. Since I am getting a free education thanks to the VA (I am a GI Bill Recipient) I am taking my education very seriously.

Plans for the Future

Graduate from UT Dallas, find a job in the GIS field(hopefully in the DFW area), buy a house
