Employed at CSS:
1.5 years
A little about yourself:
I came to Denton in August 2011 to study at UNT after graduating in the top 10% at my high school in Austin, TX. I have been employed at CSS for almost 2 years now, rising to a team lead position training new technicians. I am still pursuing a minor in music after changing my major, and still enjoy playing violin, piano, and creating electronic music. I hope to eventually combine my interests to embark on a career path in audio technology.
Why did you chose to attend UNT?:
I originally came here to study music composition, but switched to Engineering after my first year. I also enjoy the atmosphere of Denton as it does remind me of Austin in some ways.

Mechanical Engineering Technology
Expected Graduation Date:
Spring 2016
Employed at CSS:
1 year
A little about yourself:
I've always been fascinated by taking things apart, figuring out how they work, and putting them back together. I'm from Austin originally, though I did move around quite a bit. In high school, I was the president and founder of a robotics team, which competed against dozens of other high schools in the Austin and San Antonio areas. Classroom Support Services seemed like a perfect fit for someone like me.
Why did you chose to attend UNT?:
I came to UNT to move outside of my comfort zone and get a taste of independence. The engineering programs at UNT were also a major draw for me.
