What do you do now?

I’m an Associate Software Engineer at CommerceHub on the Internal Tools team.

How did your academic experience at Saint Michael’s College help prepare you for your career?

In many of the CS courses we worked in groups or would help one another while we were working in the lab. This taught me how to coordinate what needed to be done and who was going to complete each task efficiently. The Software Engineering course was especially helpful in this regard.

What is your favorite memory or class from your time studying at St. Mike’s?

I loved any of the higher level CS courses because there were only about six or seven of us in a class and we learned a lot.

Do you have any advice for incoming or current students?

It goes by fast!
