45th Annual MLK Leadership Award
I graduated from UC Berkeley in 2010 with a degree in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. I’m an engineer by training and I worked in a few organizations, including one famous one – Solyndra. Since then, I’ve had the fortunate opportunity to interact with several different departments, such as marketing, operations, manufacturing, and sales.
I began working as a Field Application Engineer at a small company called DCG Systems, starting in 2012. Over time, as I built out my reputation within the company and with customers, there was an opportunity to manage the group that I was a part of. Through my successes within the organization and with customers, I was asked to lead the team. In 2014, I made that transition into the manager of the Applications Engineering team.
