What made you want to become a Kitwarean? What made me first take interest in Kitware was that their company description listed that they worked with computer vision, which is something I became interested in back in high school on my Robotics team. I was head of the computer vision team and it was a lot of fun to work with. Back when I first interviewed with Keith Fieldhouse in 2019, what he described as his role on Kitware reminded me much of my time on my old Robotics team which is exactly what I wanted from a job. Luckily I was offered an intern position and now I’ve been here ever since.
What do you love most about what you do? I love solving problems and making things work. It is very gratifying when you figure something out. I’ll be honest, I don’t always know what to do when tackling a problem. But as I solve more and more, I start learning so much and become a better programmer, which also makes it more gratifying.
Share something interesting about yourself that is not on your resume. I enjoy playing golf a lot. I was even a “security guard” for the 2018 Golf U.S. Open. I enjoy playing video games with my friends back home, it helps us all stay friends and video games are the reason I took an interest in programming in the first place.
