"Edinboro was key to me getting my internship at Argonne National Laboratory, which in turn got me another internship at Idaho National Laboratory, which in turn got me my first full-time job. With that strong start, I was able to move from eBay to Zapier to my current position with Visa. I currently lead solutions architecture across the 18 countries of the Asia-Pacific region. Every day is a new adventure as I travel around the region and work with interesting people from many different cultures."
