What do you do to meet people in your field? I take advantage of corporate intramural leagues in the city, and try to network with the local colleges. There are two types of ChemEs… those who_______ and those who ________. Do it because they can. Do it because they believe they have to. What’s the first thought you have when you wake up in the morning? Just 5 more minutes... If your first and last initials stood for something other than your name, what would that be? Justiciar Ultimate If your college had offered a class on real-life skills for the aspiring ChE, what would you want them to teach? The easy part of difficult people. Achieving a certain level of technical mastery in a field can be done with minimal interaction. But to leverage a business and bring it to a new level requires the ability to effectively interact with people. If you weren’t a ChE what would you most want to be? Simple, a U.S. Marine. I probably would have become one if my school would've had an NROTC program. But I have to say that after my first internship in manufacturing, operations became my true love. What don’t most people know about you? I occasionally bartend for fun on the weekends. How many ChEs does it take to screw in a light bulb? None. The ChE's would simply take out and mix their fluorophor, diphenyl oxalate, and hydrogen peroxide. For those in college, make sure that you take the time to breath, enjoy, and experience college life. Know the difference between studying to live and living to study. Do you have any advice for current or future young professionals reading ChEnected? For those in college, make sure that you take the time to breath, enjoy, and experience college life. Know the difference between studying to live and living to study. For those starting their careers, you will be faced with difficult situations, but above that you will find difficult people. Make sure you take the time and foster the relationship of those you work with, for you never know who you will end up working for. LinkedIn profile.
