Hi - I'm Blayze. I like things that are interesting, and my passions get the best of me. I have two bachelors degrees; a BS in Information Systems, and a BSBA in Accounting. I also minored in International Business and Economics. At Clarion, I had great opportunities to have studied abroad in Europe, receive a state funded research grant, and still find time to graduate early. What I am most proud about from my Clarion experience was having the honor to become a member of honor fraternities Omicron Delta Epsilon, Golden Key International Honour Sociaty, and Beta Gamma Sigma.
I'm currently pursuing a Masters of Science in Information Systems from Northwestern University.
With regards to work experience, I got my first job when I was 17 and a junior in high school where I worked full time as a cook. After roughly five years, I hung up my chef coat (my mom actually burned them because they smelled like deep fryers) to apply my academic skillset in an internship at Giant Eagle where I worked as a help desk support analyst. Upon graduation, I was offered a position at UPMC Enterprises as a Systems Analyst to provide Customer Success and Support services. From this role, I have organically grown into my current role of a Cloud Infrastructure Engineer. I love what I do.
