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 on the topics I was interested in: entrepreneurship, finance, management, and many other areas. 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 including charges, phone cases, and headphones. First starting in our school, we quickly recognized the demand for our inventory and began making connections within the schools of the nearby towns. Through the connections we made, we were able to bring multiple other people onto our team to help sell our inventory in the surrounding towns and online. Our company lasted successfully for 7-months before my partner and I decided to pursue alternative interests. This experience strengthened my already great passion for business and helped me 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 a business. I am currently working on multiple side projects, serving as a webmaster for various companies, and continuing to discover and pursue my passions and interests.
