Favorite UMKC professor or class
Client/Server Programming with Bob Cotter, Ph.D. I’ve never learned more about computer networking in any other class.
Best memory at UMKC
Going to Puerto Rico for my undergraduate research project.
Starting my own high-tech company.
A semester with 18 credit hours and working 20 hours a week without a car.
An ideal day
When my to-do list is full of check marks.
Most important quality in a friend
Ability to inspire me. I believe we are the average of our five closest friends.
Favorite way to relax
Going to the Plaza to watch a movie or watching a play at the UMKC Performing Arts Center.
Go out without my iPod.
My biggest fear
That the high-tech industry is in another bubble.
