Summary

As a 3rd year engineering student, I am always seeking ways to learn new things from a broad range of disciplines to complement my technical studies in engineering and architecture. I am enrolled in a business foundations program at my university, as well as a certificate program in Innovation, Creativity, and Entrepreneurship. I am wanting to expand my skills into the fields of advertising, design, interior design and the music industry, but open to many other fields as I'm driven to learn as much as I can.

I've interned for 4 summers with CPS Energy, the largest publicly owned utility company in the United States.

I helped in administrative tasks such as bookkeeping, data entry, and updating customer records. For external relations I made factsheets on CPS Energy for state representatives and lobbied at the Texas State Capitol for CPS Energy's new programs. In underground engineering I drew overhead power line site sketches and underground power line sketches on AutoCAD.
