WM: Where did you study after graduating fromAISB? Did you finish college / university or are you still studying?
I went to Dickinson College in Carlisle, PA after graduating from AISB. I intended to major in Pre- Engineering with a focus on Physics, but changedmy mind during my first year. I decided to still majorin Physics but I added a second major, Music Theory and a minor, Astronomy to the list. Not having studied music previously in my life, it waschallenging but very fulfilling. I graduated with aB.S. in May of 2011.
WM: If you graduated from college, what is the career path you chose for your future?
A lot of things happened since graduating college, I volunteered for a while doing business development and marketing for a few organizations in the San Francisco Bay Area. After that portion, together with my fellow student from AISB, Andrei Harnagea, we started a new company. It is called Barrel CatProductions (Barrel Cat, LLC) and it focuses on film& animation production. I took care of operations and of the sound/audio production division. Along with that, I spent two months in New Jersey working as a programmer analyst for a small ITconsulting firm, after which I returned to SanFrancisco to focus some more on Barrel Cat. Since January 2012, I have been working at an acousticsand vibrations consulting firm called Vibro-AcousticConsultants as an Engineering Technician, and contributing to Barrel Cat on the side.
WM: Where in the world are you right now and what are your plans for the future?
Although I have been working in the Bay Area for a while, my future plans are to go to graduate school in mechanical engineering, which I shouldbe doing starting this Fall. I’m unsure which schoolI will end up at, but there is an almost 99% chance that I will be going to University of Florida to get anM.S. Ideally, after my master’s degree, I will work at a company in the US, focusing on engineering product design or structural modeling and analysis.
