I study entrepreneurship at Grove City College, where I work hard to further my business ideas and meet other ambitious individuals along the way.
I grew up in Slippery Rock working at my family’s veterinary practice and farm. What started out as simply helping my grandpa with barn chores grew into taking on roles as farm manager and salesman. Just before starting high school, I joined 4-H to show beef cattle – but soon I discovered a passion for public speaking, leadership and photography that brought me to the national level. I discovered my love for photography after joining a local photography club. Soon I had purchased my first camera and began shooting at every available opportunity. Through experimentation with many styles of photography and my love of working with people, I decided to focus on portraiture photography.
From a very young age, I have always felt the calling to be an entrepreneur, but it was not until junior year of high school that I decided it was what I want to do for the rest of my life. In fact, until then, I still planned on going to school to be a veterinarian. I decided to enroll at Grove City College, where I am pursuing my business ideas while studying entrepreneurship. The college has outstanding faculty and talented students that encourage me to develop my skillset. Outside of the college, I love networking in Pittsburgh and New York, pursuing the opportunity to meet new people and hear their stories. It is my ultimate dream to help others through my businesses and mentor youth in entrepreneurship as others have done for me.
