Summary

I attended the University of Maine from August 2003 to December 2007, where I received my B.A in Communications with a concentration in Public Relations and Advertisement/Marketing.  This field of study has given me extensive experience in individual and group work projects.  I am always considerate to all ideas and proposals in group work so that my team can strive toward accomplishing our goal, which is to produce for your company.  The skills that I have learned are prized attributes of mine that I utilize to achieve all given goals, and always impress and surpass any expectations. I am excellent under pressure, meeting deadlines, and conducting myself in a manner which portrays value and respect.  I also played five years of college football at a division 1 program.  After college, I allowed my motivation, persistence and dreams carry me into the NFL. I played professional football for the Jacksonville Jaguars for two years until a severe career-ending injury took its toll on my playing career.  The NFL was more than a lifelong dream of mine.  It was an outlet for me to network with many intelligent and influential people and companies which have and will continue to build the roadway to my success.  My football career has groomed me to be a man of strength, dignity, and honor, in all aspects of life. I will always apply the same set of values to achieve great success: a world class competitive spirit, commitment to my goal, unwavering team work, and a phenomenal work ethic.

Mentor

Pashos for Kids

Here, I participated in the non-profit program in which we were friends to foster children. We would give motivational speeches, talk to them individually, play games, and generally just bring them out to enjoy the fun that life has to offer their youth. On many occasions we have gone out to see a movie, go bowling, and often we would enjoy nights out to dinner. It was a rewarding experience to give a child the meaning of family, love, and life.
