Alumni Biography: 

I am currently working as a Data Analyst at Optum Technologies, utilizing my Computer Science and Mathematics degrees. However, I am also working to publish my Spanish senior honors project, which is a translated manuscript called “I've Got a Bad Feeling”. Originally written in Spanish by Arquímedes González, the book is a collection of fifty-two short stories published in 2016, which I translated under the guidance of Professor Steven White over the course of my senior year. Many of these stories have won literary prizes around the world, including prizes in Spain, Austria, France, Mexico, Germany and Colombia. At this point in the project, I am reaching out to publishers and magazines hoping to share González's stories with a wider audience. Though not directly tied to to my full time job, I'm enjoying working on this project and glad that I'm able to continue utilizing my Spanish after graduation.
