Amherst, Massachusetts, United States
Hey. I'm Andrew Hebert. I'm a geek, not a nerd. Make sure you get that right.
What's the difference? The shortest way I can put it: Geeks are socialable.
I was born in a small town called Lanesborough in western Massachusetts. Growing up in a small community shaped who I am today. I value the importance of family and interconnection between everyone in your community. I enjoyed the relaxed tone of my hometown for as long as I lived there.
That all changed when I went to college at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, where I attended the Isenberg School of Management. Suddenly, my life went quiet and peaceful to hectic, with more stuff to do than I could possibly imagine. As you can imagine, it was quite the shift for me.
I study Operations & Information Management with a minor in Information Technology. This major couldn't be a better fit for me. I get to combine my interest in business with my passion/hobby of current tech. I wouldn't ask for anything else.
At a young age, I developed an interest in all the lastest technology. I grew up at the perect time in my opinion. The internet was starting to get big and every device you could think of was getting smaller and more powerful. Most people don't bat an eye at the evolution of technology, but I get excited every time a new product is announced.
I'm a person that thinks about the future all the time. I often wonder where my education will take me. More than anything, I'd love to get involved in a consumer electronics company. Maybe one of the big brands, but developing a smaller company into a larger one excites me more than that. If I could choose, I would work for a company that sells 3D printers.
By the way, did I mention I love 3D printers?
3D printers are the technology I'm excited about the most (Seriously, look them up if you don't know what they are). Now that you you what they are, doesn't the possibility of printing almost anything excite you? It sure does for me. The fact that functional cars have been 3D printed shows just how mind blowing this technology can be.
I'm pretty excited for the day I can afford one, if you couldn't tell.
Working with a company that produces and sells 3D printers would be the dream job. Wherever I end up in the future, I hope that I get to work with the latest tech. If I end up in a job where I don't get to work with any of it, my inner geek will pester me to quit
