I am originally from Owensboro,KY then at a young age moved to the Louisville Area (Indiana side). My education I have an undergraduate in Electrical Engineering Technology (EET) from Purdue University and work as an Operations Engineer at MISO (Carmel,IN - Northside of Indy) for over six years. MISO is a power management company that provides reliability awareness on the transmission system and a power market that helps find the most economical generation for our members (utilities) for about 11 states in and around the Midwest that includes the Canadian province of Manitoba. I chose the program at GU because I was looking to increase my academic knowledge of the power industry. Since I am a distance student I have enjoyed getting to interact with students and teachers located all over the world. My department administrators have done a good job getting highly qualified engineers to help teach the courses. I have included a picture of me at the entrance Denali National Park in Alaska taken last August.
