Morgan hopes to end his internship with a better idea of energy-efficient mechanical design and how that interacts with building aesthetics and architecture.
People would be surprised if they knew: I have a twin brother! He’s also an engineering major at UT and people confuse us often.
Something on your bucket list? To eventually be able to cover the walls of a room with shelves of books that I’ve read.
Favorite thing(s) to do in Austin? I’m a big fan of going to concerts at Austin’s many venues, especially for indie music. Admittedly it’s not healthy for my ears, but it’s worth it.
