Mr. Old Product Manager
My lower grades were mainly at Dixie State University. I was part of an early college program and took college classes from ages 15-18, graduating tuition free. While grateful for that experience, I spread myself too thin as I was the varsity soccer captain and the senior class president in student government. My GPA improved at the U of U.

Post MBA Goal:
Work in Europe as a Product Manager at a Tech company for 2-5 years before returning to the United States. I’d be happy to start at a larger company, but would also like to work at a start-up and move into a Director of Product role. Self-funding my MBA with savings, plus the sale of a house. Remaining debt-free is important to me.
