Steve Ebel received his MBA
from Rice University in 1997. He currently is a Technical Sales Representative with Exxon
Marlow -- In 1992, I received my BS from The University of
Alabama, married, moved to Atlanta, and began a career in IT consulting
with Accenture (formerly Andersen Consulting). I have remained with the
firm since that time. In 1996, I received a MS degree in mechanical
engineering. The excitement really began in 1998 when my wife, Leigha,
and I had our first child. In 2002, I decided to leave the consulting
division of Accenture and join a long-term outsourcing arrangement in
Birmingham, Alabama - less than an hour from where I grew up. As of
5/2003, Leigha and I have three children ranging from 5 years to 9
months. In 2003, I began studying Law at the Birmingham School of Law.
"With an MBA from the MIT Sloan
School of Business, I joined wall street (first with Merrill Lynch and
currently with Morgan Stanley). I am married now and have a 2 year old,
with another expected in Feb. 2002. Hope all are doing well. Call or
email if you can." (10/01)
Tahanovsky: "After graduating in ChemE from
Columbia in 1992, I moved from NYC to Alaska and worked in Environmental Remediation
Engineering for 4 years there. Great experience, loved it. In 1996, I moved to Silicon
Valley and decided to try my hand at Software Development, a decidedly opportunistic move
which has turned out to be quite lucrative. It also turns out the Engineering process is
pretty much the same whether you're designing chemical unit operations or software
processes. I am currently working as a Software Engineering manager at a wireless web
startup that is so far weathering the dotcom crash quite well. Would love to hear from my
fellow WISEians!" (2/01) I recently started a new position as
Program Manager for a corporate tax software company. I'm still in the
Bay Area, weathering the dot com meltdown. Alas, I've been bitten by the
startup bug! If you haven't rented the movie Startup.com yet - think of
me when you do. I lived it! Hey - Drop me a line if you're going to be
in Northern Cal.; I'd love to catch up. (12/01)
