Professional Summary

Since graduating college I've been rather busy. After an eye-opening summer internship at a law firm, my intent of pursuing a legal career quickly changed. Since then, I've moved all around the pacific northwest, acquired and flipped 3 estates, and have held a multitude of jobs. I've grown to enjoy many of which and am proud to say at every job I've ever possessed, I was ever so quick to move up the ladder. However, I feel the time is now to follow my passion with working in sports. Now, I understand I do not posses the 5-10 years experience most sports management positions desire. Though, please let me assure you I do posses the leadership abilities, the technical proficiency, the motivation to exceed expectations, a winning attitude, and above all, a willingness to learn. To briefly demonstrate my experience in the sports field, operating my last bar, I have hosted and promoted sponsorships with Washington State University's Football, Basketball, and Baseball teams. I involved our brand with various partnerships to cater to a list of small and big business with several sports affiliates. For management purposes, I hired 44 employees, managed all their personalities to flow together, was responsible for millions of dollars of revenue, was responsible for creating a safe yet fun atmosphere, and to meet those standards worked 80-100 hours a week without one complaint. I have just turned 26 and am looking not to get just a job but am looking for the opportunity to start a career. With that intention, in being given just the chance to prove myself, I am willing to relocate across the country and even take a lesser role if given the opportunity to prove myself.
