Why did you choose to attend Southeast?

My dad went to SEMO. So I wanted to experience what he experienced.

Who influenced you most during your time at Southeast?

I have three individuals who I can attribute to my growth and success. Bruce Skinner was a huge influence on me when giving advise about my career. Dr Guiling was a great professor who taught me how to apply my knowledge of psychology; and Dr David Cameron who helped me with my undergraduate thesis. He really tested our abilities to learn complex subjects and helped me grow my skills in critical thinking.

Share your best college memory.

Homecoming was always an amazing experience and probably were I had my best memories.

If you were in Greek Life, the Honors Program or any other student organization, please tell us about that experience and how it impacted you.

My experience as a Delta Chi was incredible and helped me become very successful in my career. It’s also opens doors to networking events. It was exciting to find out that the CEO of my company is a fellow brother.

What is the most important thing you learned while you were at Southeast?

You can be smart and have good grades, but it won’t get you anywhere in life if you fail to work hard and really understand how to apply the information the professors teach you.

Describe Southeast in three words.

Best, school, ever.

What advice would you give current students or recent graduates interested in pursuing a career in your professional field?

Failure is a part of life but it is the greatest way to learn. I would say learn as much as you can and if you fail try again until you succeed. College is the best time to practice fixing mistakes without real world consequences. Also learning what skills and abilities will make you successful in life and your career is how college will prepare you for the future.
