Call me Eddie

Where I'm From

I was born in Philadelphia, PA, (which naturally makes me a fan of the Eagles, Flyers, Phillies, and the 76ers) but I moved down to Florida when I was 6. I spent 2 years in Naples before moving to Titusville which is about 30-40 minutes from the Kennedy Space Center.

My Major

Currently, I am planning to Major in Civil Engineering. I guess it all stemmed from my love of Legos as a child. Just kidding. I have always appreciated the designs of the structures around me. I hope to have the opportunity to add my name to the list of engineers who have built some of the most incredible structural achievements know to man.


I joined the EXCEL program to be among other students with similar majors as myself. I thought that this would be an easy way to associate myself with the students that I would likely see in a number of my upcoming classes. I also joined EXCEL because of the extra support offered by this program.

How EXCEL/COMPASS Will Help Me Succeed

The EXCEL program will provide me with extra academic support during my time studying to be an engineer. This program allows me to be among other STEM majors who are likely to be in my future classes.

One Unique Fact

I never like these questions. I always seem to be at a loss for words whenever this type of question is asked. But as I was writing about my major above, I decided that not many people would assume that I am fascinated with history and the arts, chiefly that of ancient civilizations through the Renaissance.
