Why did you choose to apply to and attend Booth?

Coming from a highly technical background, I found this methodology to mesh well with my previous industry experiences.
Activities: On a professional level, I am an active member of the Booth Technology Group and the European Business Group. In my free time, I love working out with the Booth Boxing Club and expanding my pallet with the Wine Club!
