Major & Graduation


Short-Term Goals

Within the next few years I aspire to study abroad in Spain and pick up Spanish as a fluent second language. I will graduate from Illinois Tech in 2017 with a 3.5 GPA or above, as a Leadership Academy Scholar and as a student leader on Illinois Tech’s campus. In this time I will obtain quality work experience in various architecture as well as construction firms. I will continue my leadership role as a wrestling coach for the Saint Viator wrestling team as well, and by the time I graduate I will be a well-rounded individual prepared for the next stage in my life with plenty of working and leadership experience.


Long-Term Goals

After graduating from Illinois Tech I will continue to work with different firms until I am ready to begin my own firm handling design, general contracting, and onsite construction. Ultimately, I will tie all my goals together as a support for the main goals in my life: becoming a great father for my future children and becoming a strong, just, and motivational leader in society. I want to leave this world having made a difference not just in the lives of my family, but also in the lives of people worldwide.
