I entered the field of design because of my alarm clock.

I was 12 years old.

I found myself holding the "set" button, while clicking the "time" button hundreds of times, always going one minute over.

I said, “when I grow up, I’m gonna make stuff better.”

And I’ve been trying to do that ever since.

Gabe brought numerous skills to the table including his impressive design knowledge and skills, his ability to see the big picture goal and break it down into components, and his unwavering passion for the project. I felt fortunate to have him on my team and am very proud of our accomplishments in the course.
