For Stephen Honikman, JD ’98, MS ’98, his legal training combined with his master’s degree in technology and human affairs has allowed him to pursue a range of entrepreneurial interests in emerging markets.
After law school, Honikman moved to Silicon Valley, where he began working with new and established dot-com companies, drafting privacy policies and other business documents, and participating in internet product development.
Over time, I naturally fell into a sort of business to technology liaison, he says, bridging the gap between software engineers and business executives to provide better understanding of the other’s needs and constraints.
Born in a solar home, Honikman has always had an interest in renewable energy. After law school, I was looking for ways to merge my career in the web with my passion for all things related to sustainability, especially development of clean energy resources, he says.
