I am a 23-year-old undergraduate student in my final year at the University of Utah. I am completing a Bachelor of Science in Speech Communication with emphasis in Argumentation & Conflict. I am also completing minors in Business and Recreation with a focus on Sport Management. My goal is to take my education further so that I may one day practice law as an agent. I am in the process of applying to law schools for the upcoming Fall.
I am an avid sport fan and enthusiast that enjoys snowboarding and skiing and playing hockey and soccer. My home resort is Northstar-at-Tahoe, and I am a current season pass holder at Park City Mountain Resort. I learned to ski at the age of 4 and converted to snowboarding about 11 years ago and have done both ever since. I combined work with my passion for the snow in the past as an snowboard instructor for both Park City Mountain Resort and Canyons. As far as hockey goes, I grew up playing and am an avid San Jose Sharks fan. I often try to incorporate my love for the game with my academics and future career. I have dedicated much of my studies into learning, lecturing and writing about the business side to the game.
I enjoy writing and enrolled in the newswriting course as an elective. I hoped to further develop my overall writing ability and to advance my ability to write concisely. It has been a fun and entertaining learning experience.
