Software Engineer

Saint works at Microsoft in Seattle. After Malone, he's earned master's degrees from Brigham Young and the University of Washington. He is particularly interested in open source programming.

“I am so glad I chose Malone because of the multi-dimensional aspects of the computer science curriculum. I was interested in how technology works in the business world and the value it creates for various organizations. I worked in the IT department as a student, and it is one of my fondest memories—it helped me understand real world applications.”
