My Educational Objectives:

        I am currently a senior in pursuit of an undergraduate degree in Labor Economics at the University of Akron.  I am also working on two separate minors as well, History and English.  My current GPA for my economic courses is above a 3.1/4.0.  As a sign of my academic achievement while in attendance at the UA, I have recently been inducted into Omicron Delta Epsilon, the International Economics Honorary Society.  I have a strong interest in envrionmental care, which is the topic of my senior project.  I wish to pursue a graduate degree in environmental finance later in life. 

My Career Objectives:

        In the long run, I would like to be situated in the public sector.  I wish to help in the construction of social policy, primarily on the state level.  As a student of both economics and history I have learned a great amount concerning the evolution of ideas and laws within the United States.  I have gained the hard analytical approach of history with the mathematical ability and distinct perspective that only one trained in economics gains.  I want to return the skills I have received through education to benefit the public.  My short-term goal is to be employed by an environmental organization, such as the EPA or Department of Agriculture, Forestry Services.  My long-run goals include attaining my master's degree and help in spreading environmentally conscious forms of energy.

Collegiate Accomplishments: 

        My academic achievements include being on Dean's List for 3 semesters during my four years in my pursuit for a bachelors.  My freshman year I was educated at Marietta College.  While there, I was enrolled in the college’s McDonough School of Leadership, rated fifth in the nation.  Also, while there I was a brother of the Delta Tau Delta international fraternity.  Even though I was a freshman I sat on my councils including Ritual, Social, and Recruitment.  I also was elected to be a representative for the fraternity in the Interfraternal Council, IFC.  My job there involved constructing bylaws for fraternal life and the establishment of rules for Rush Week.  More recently as stated previously, I have been accepted into Omicron Delta Epsilon.
