"My days at Purdue taught me the importance of: Leadership - great things can be accomplished when you work as a team. Constant learning - the world of technology changes so fast you have to be constantly reeducating yourself. Problem Solving - there is more than one solution for the big problems. Have fun - life is too short not to."
