My Stories

About Me:

The first thing you may want to know about me is how to pronounce my first name, Aodhan. You wouldn’t be the first to wonder the correct pronunciation, which is simply AI – d eh n, it’s Celtic in origin, but now onto more important things.

I am 21-years-old and in my last undergraduate semester at the University of Utah. My degree will be a Bachelor of Science in Mass Communication. I completed my Associates of Science degree while in high school and was able to garner a scholarship to attend the University of Utah. I’m contemplating furthering my education with a law degree, but have yet to make that decision.

I’ve lived in Utah for around nine years, having lived in Washington State and Montana previously. I’m an avid outdoors enthusiast with my main interests being snowboarding and cycling. I’ve worked in the outdoor and alternative sports industry with companies such as and Zumiez inc. My personal experience and knowledge of the industries really helped me excel with these companies.

I’m very excited to be graduating and look forward to further developing my skills professionally.
