Major: Building Construction

Hometown: Richmond, Virginia 

About Me: Most of the time you will see me in uniform as I am a member of the Virginia Tech Corps of Cadets. In the VTCC, I am a proud member of the Regimental Band: The Highty-Tighties. Somehow I managed to be accepted into the band with no knowledge of music but from this experience I have learned and experienced so much. When I am not in uniform I am a lover of all music and gamer at heart who loves messing around with technology and my custom-built desktop. I also have a passion for all things cars and I currently have a love-hate (mostly love) relationship with a beautiful 1965 Mustang. 

Somehow I've managed to find myself in the school of construction after coming to Tech with mechanical engineering in mind. Although fairly new to the school and the industry of construction, I believe I have found home in construction which fits me well. I look forward to forging new relationships in the industry and within the school of construction so if you see me don't be afraid to say hi!

About Me: I declared Building Construction as my major just recently this summer and I am currently the Fundraising Chair for Building Goodness Foundation here at Virginia Tech.
