What began for me as a journey in physics through undergrad and graduate school has led me to opportunities that I could never have imagined. I’m going to step through the choices I made, the ramifications they had for me, and what I wish I knew before I had graduated. I’ll give specific examples of work I’ve done in academia, corporate America, and the NBA world, and give tips to being successful in a variety of environments.
