What inspired you to start your own companies:
I’m very attracted to freedom, specifically having the ability to do what I want, when I want.
You were chosen to be on ProMazo’s list of Most Interesting Students for a reason. Do you have any advice for other students hoping to create their own success:
I believe that it is always better to try something and fail, rather than not trying anything at all. Especially in college – I was lucky that I started both of my companies in college. I believe college is one of the easiest times to start something of your own due to the lack of various commitments and risks that typically come later in life.

Biggest role models or inspirations:
Throughout my life, my parents have consistently been my biggest role models. I hope that one day, when I have kids of my own, I’ll be able to be like them.
Professionally, I’ve had many great mentors. Individuals within my network constantly inspire me to keep moving forward. Considering that, all of the success that I’ve had thus far would not have been possible without networking.
I enjoy working. I’m not only referring to my current position, but to work in general. I love efficiency and productivity. And of course, I like making money so that I can have the freedom to do what I want.
I wish I had more free time! I used to play golf, but now any free time that I can find is typically spent with my girlfriend, friends, and family.
I love what I’m doing now. My goal is to expand Exclusive Event Experiences to other universities and professional stadiums. I’ll likely always be an entrepreneur – I never want to give up my freedom, nor the ability to see the direct return on my hard work.
