Position: 
Information Systems Coordinator

Years at Tech: 4 as an undergraduate and graduate student; 3 in admission

Favorite thing about Tech: I like that Tech offers a true campus experience and long-running traditions within the backdrop of a thriving urban space.

Favorite place on campus: The roof of the Clough Undergraduate Learning Commons. It offers a fantastic view of the city, it's planted with a variety of flora, and is home several hives as part of Georgia Tech's Urban Bee Project.

Favorite place in Atlanta: The Atlanta Botanical Garden is a true gem just north of Piedmont Park. A permanent exhibit at the garden mimics high elevation mountains in South America. On display there a number of rare orchid species.

Favorite restaurant near campus: Ecco in Midtown serves up great plates of continental European fare.

What I recommend to do while in Atlanta: Weather permitting, stroll down the Midtown Mile on Peachtree Street and check out the many shops, restaurants, and historic buildings and landmarks such as the Fox Theater. It houses the second largest theater organ in the world!
