This May it will have been seven years since I graduated from Humboldt State University with a degree in Political Science. Humboldt State was a phenomenal education and experience that I wouldn't change for the world. During my time at HSU I studied Political Science, English and US History. When I wasn't at work at Humboldt Merchant Services (now owned by Moneris Solutions) downloading Verifone Omni 3630's and setting up new gateways for ecommerce accounts, I hiked the hills of campus or raft guided on the seven rivers nearby. Humboldt was good to me and in my opinion one of the most underrated schools on the west coast.
April 19th 2013
This April I will be presented with the same award as Ken Fisher at Humboldt State University which amazes me to think that in six years I accomplished a mere dream (which also is scary, be careful for what you wish for!).
MY PRESENTATION HAS BEEN UPDATED ONLINE:
The Power of Dreaming
Lastly, while I feel honored for this award I can't help but think about all the other milestones moving forward. 2012 was filled with personal and professional changes including my cross country move back home to SF.
