Hometown: Santa Cruz, CA
Undergraduate College: UCLA
Favorite sports to play: Baseball and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu
Favorite Sports Movie: Field Of Dreams (I dare you not to cry at the ending…)
Why SDSU Sports MBA: The opportunity to get a formal business education in the industry that I love, along with all of the hands-on experience that we gain here, made SDSU the obvious choice. San Diego is such a unique sports community, and we have so many local alumni and companies to learn from.
Favorite class so far: Organizational Behavior
Fun fact about you: I’ve hiked to the top of the 1400 year-old Fushimi Inari Shrine in Kyoto, Japan.
Best out of the classroom activity so far: The Farmers Insurance Open – it was the first opportunity that we had as a cohort to get out there and take ownership of an event. It opened my eyes to the many different avenues that we can pursue by “working in sports” – so many opportunities that we would normally have never thought of!
