Big Life Wins:
In the summer of 2015, I rode my bike across America with 4 of my friends. Dubbing ourselves Ride for Water we raised over $60,000 for clean water projects overseas. This trip was instrumental in my development and a topic I spoke about in my application.

Directly following my MBA I aim to move from a theoretical sales perspective in retail and pivot into project management/marketing in entertainment with a company like Netflix, Hulu, or Sony.
