My story begins in Tolland, Connecticut, where I have lived 15 of the past 19 years of my life. Here, I attended the public school system and graduated from Tolland High School in 2018. I am currently apart of High Point University’s class of 2022 where I am pursuing a degree in Business Administration.
Since as long as I can remember I have been passionate about business, first experimenting with sales in as early as 6th grade, buying and reselling used sunglasses on eBay and in school. This first experience sparked a desire to learn about business from a very young age. From then on, I began reading books in the topics I was interested in: entrepreneurship, finance, management, and many other topics. A few years down the road in my sophomore year of high school, I started my first business with a partner of mine buying and reselling used iPhones on the internet and in person. A few weeks later, we recognized the potential to expand and shortly after we also began selling phone accessories such as charges, phone cases, and headphones. First starting in our school, we quickly recognized the demand and began making connections within the schools of the nearby towns, then bringing multiple other people on to help sell our inventory. Our company lasted successfully for 7-months before my partner and I decided to pursue alternative interests. This experience strengthened my already powerful passion for business and helped my realize the importance of entrepreneurship. Since then, my hunger for growth has pushed me towards a path of learning and experimentation with various aspects of business. I am currently working on multiple side projects, serving as a Webmaster for multiple companies, working as an intern at a financial firm, and discovering and chasing more of my interests and passions.
