Any advice for future CWRU alumni in your major or in general?

What does being a Case Western Reserve University alumnus mean to you?
Case Western Reserve University is a world-class institution that has a long tradition, and its students have strong reputations as innovators. I always enjoy attending events in the San Francisco Bay Area and having people compliment the reputation of the engineering, medical, business and law schools. In addition, my grandfather, John Rampe, went to the Case Institute of Technology; my great aunt, Betty Norton, went to Flora Mather; and my uncle, Rick Whitbeck, went to the Weatherhead School of Management. Getting my education at CWRU was a rich personal experience for these reasons as well.
What did you do immediately after graduation?
I joined Marketo immediately after graduation as an early member of a start-up with big ambitions. My entire career has been working for companies on the bleeding edge of technology, and this opportunity was a great fit for me culturally, in addition to being a complement to my education and previous experience.
Where do you live, and how do you like living there?
I currently live in San Francisco. I think it is the best city on the planet. Go Giants!!!
