Thank you for visiting my e-portfolio!

I am originally from Oxford, Connecticut. I decided to come to Temple University in Philadelphia because of the opportunities that the city itself and the MIS department have to offer. I am studying Management Information Systems as I am especially fascinated in the creative process behind how IT can fuel business operations.

In addition to my BBA, I am also pursuing a Certification of Specialization in Spanish as I am immensely passionate about speaking and understanding a language that is frequently disregarded in the business world. I will be traveling to Oviedo, Spain this coming summer to assimilate the culture and refine my Spanish-speaking skills.

My goals for the future are vast and constantly fluctuating. I am an entrepreneur at heart and I realized this at a young age when I attempted to go door-to-door in my neighborhood selling rocks from my backyard. As I grew up, I discovered the significance of technology in the most successful businesses and this intrigued me.  I don’t know exactly what I would like to do with the technical skills I acquire but my plan is that they will aid my ability to make businesses better. Perhaps eventually this might include a company of my own.
