Experience in the field

For my senior design project at CU Boulder, my team and I developed a virtual reality laparoscopic surgery simulator with Tensentric. I then joined the team after graduating from school.

What do you like about working at a company that designs medical products?

I really enjoy learning about the biology behind the devices we build. I love telling people about the cutting-edge solutions we help bring to life.

Where were you born/where did you grow up?

I was born in a tiny little fishing town in Long Island, NY, where I learned how to sail before I could walk. After enduring one too many New York winters I decided to move out West and trade the salt water for the mountains.

If you could join one rock band, which one would you join and why…?

I’ve always thought to myself that the Jonas Brothers have a really underrated band. I’d honestly love to be a back up singer for them in some of their new projects.

When you were in elementary school, what did you want to be when you grew up?

Throughout my childhood I always wanted to be an airline pilot, until I learned about the not-so-glamorous nature of the job.
