Summary

My goal is to further my knowledge of and continue my work in the music industry. I have been passionate about music since I was 11 years old. I have two businesses that I started. Both of these businesses revolve around music. My plan is to earn a Bachelor of Science Degree in Music Industry and Recording Technology. I want to attend either New York University, Drexel University, or University of Colorado at Denver because these universities have excellent Music Industry programs. These universities also require and provide opportunities to work in internships where I would continue to get hands-on experience as well as the ability to make important contacts for my future. I am passionate about music and theory  since it has such a wide range. I also feel that the experiences that I have and my passion for music and creativity are a part of the diversity that I will be able to offer these universities and be able to share with my fellow students. In addition to my love of music (listening, performing, producing), I also enjoy golf, hiking, traveling, politics and current events.
