What he does: I work as an Internal Auditor for Hartford Steam Boiler, where I primarily focus on Internal Controls and Operational Audits. I am only working part time now due to health issues. I make it a priority to provide good results, which helps the company as a whole.

What he loves about Hartford: I have been living in the Hartford area for 20 years. I have gained friends from both my professional and personal Hartford experiences, which have helped me to grow to what I am today. I cannot envision moving and living anywhere else. I also really enjoy the fall foliage in this area!

His favorite thing about HYPE: Through HYPE, I have gotten to know people in a professional and personal setting. Being a member on 3 different committees, I have become familiar in how HYPE events run and the hard work that is put into each one. It is also really nice to meet new people at each meeting!

If he won a million dollars: If I won a million dollars I would pay off my college loans and also help my family. The rest I would donate either to a good cause or give it as a grant to a student who is brilliant, but cannot afford to attend college.
