Greeley, Colorado, United States

I am a business marketing major, NCAA D1 student-athlete in the Monfort College of Business at the University of Northern Colorado, golf being my sport. I have been playing golf since the age of 3 and it is 100% of my life. Growing up I was always given the opportunity to play golf as much as I could in the summer and was constantly competing. When it came time to apply for college, I knew I wanted to be a part of a Division 1 athletics program, and Northern Colorado became my new, wonderful home.

I have always been interested in sports and not only the actual events but all of the statistics and planning behind them, which led me to wanting to pursue a field in sports marketing. I want people to want to play sports, watch sports, and use certain brands and equipment as much as I do. Although I am not limited to a specific sporting department I want to be involved with the marketing or advertising of a golf equipment company or the PGA Tour directly.

Since I have been in college I have watched just about every tournament during the PGA Tour season as well as the European Tour season. Following the players on Tour throughout the season and listening to former Tour players or newscasters discuss the game is very interesting to me. The Golf Channel is constantly playing at my house or on my phone and I keep very current on all the players stats. I love watching golf as much as I love playing it.
