What drove me to join the Nerf team and Hasbro, in general, is their commitment to philanthropic endeavors, creative problem solving, and, of course, fun! I always knew I wanted to find myself at a company where I can express my creativity, and Hasbro has been the perfect place to do exactly that. Babson’s Graduate Center for Career Development played a large role in me landing my position at Hasbro.
I have been passionate about robotics since childhood and did my bachelor's and master's research related to this. Customers want to experience personalization. Our human-sized robots move around autonomously, engage with customers walking in, identify them through face recognition, and converse through cutting-edge technologies.
After leaving the military in 2019, my goals were to grow quickly in renewable energy. I also have interest in entrepreneurship and venture capital.

The Leading Entrepreneurship Action (LEAP) class had a tremendous impact on the work I do now. The ability to learn how to work on a team and communicate my ideas, while also taking in the ideas of others is an incredibly valuable skill that I use every day. Working with my classmates through the process of launching our own business challenged me in ways no other class did. The successes, the failures, the disagreements, and triumphs are all things that happen every day in the real business world. Being able to go through that before I started my professional career was incredible.
