In his own words
“Drew provided me with a foundation on which to build my software engineering expertise. The school provided numerous opportunities to build websites for real clients both in and outside of class, helped me secure a valuable internship with AFreeBird, and allowed me to do research during the summers through Drew Summer Science Institute (DSSI) and Digital Humanities Summer Institute (DHSI). These experiences contributed to a steady evolution of my skills and portfolio, which eventually helped me land the job with Chainalysis.”
