University of Dayton, 2020
Why I chose ESTEEM ?
As an entrepreneur and innovator myself, I chose ESTEEM so I could work alongside like-minded, creative, hard-working individuals who will ultimately create positive change for the world.
My capstone project and why I'm excited about it ?
I am working with digital media startup, URLIFE Media, to validate and commercialize their on-demand digital editing services in the university athletics/fundraising market. I will be conducting a pilot program with ND athletics to deliver custom game day experiences for donors with URLIFE’s services. Based on what we learn from the program and the insights we receive from stakeholders, we will determine the best go-to-market strategy for the service.
What I hope to do after ESTEEM ?
I really enjoy the entertainment space since I am able to create products and services that I can see users enjoy. I aspire to find a career path that allows exactly that and I will leverage the ESTEEM/ND resources and alumni network to explore and discover what that best next step may be.
What I like to do when I'm not working ?
When not working, you can find me playing backyard games (its cornhole, not bags), trying new local places to eat, and working on side projects (which is currently an autonomous Lego sorter). However, I should note that I am a HUGE fantasy football nerd. In fact, I play in multiple year round leagues where we use salary caps, give players contracts, and treat ourselves as general managers. I sometimes joke with people that I have learned more about business and negotiation playing fantasy football than I have in school.
