HC: How old are you? 

MM: 21


HC: What is your major? Why did you choose this as your major?

MM: Mechanical engineering. I’ve always been very mechanical and hands on, so it was pretty easy to figure out what I wanted to major in. 


 HC: How are you involved on campus?

MM: I'm involved in the society of automotive engineers, but it really hasn't kicked off yet. I'm interested in joining the 3D printing club or starting a club of my own. 


HC: Why did you choose USD?

MM: Most of my family is from San Diego, so I spent a good amount of time down here growing up. I knew this was the city to be in. I chose USD over other schools due to its great engineering program and small class sizes. 


HC: What is your favorite thing about USD?

MM: Great food, awesome people, amazing professors, close proximity to everything. 


HC: What is your dream job?

MM: My dream job is to be my own boss. I want to start my own company. 


HC: What is your favorite movie?

MM: Supercross.

HC: Do you have any hobbies? 

MM: I’ve been riding Moto and mountain bikes for most of my life. I also have a passion for air cooled Porsches. 


HC: What are your plans after college?

MM: I plan on starting my own company along with keeping my passion for air cooled Porsches around.
