Track and Field

I was the top freshmen in college for hammer throw and 2'nd in the league for discus throwing. I still have the Discus record at Liberty High School.

Metal Working

I make a lot of metal art on my free time. Working with metal and seeing all the variations which are appealing has taught me to think outside the box.

Fitness Training


I am working very hard on my spanish to broaden my capabilities of business abroad. I am taking a strong approach to learn both the language itself and the culture behind the language as i know that culture takes a large part of business in many countries. By learning the cultures in addition to the language, I will be able to keep business practices ethical to their cultural requirements, and stand out among competition to those who can tell that my company and I spark an interest in their customs and traditions.

Micro-computer applications

I am very computer savvy and have a well understanding for both Macintosh and Windows programs. I’ve taken two microcomputer application classes where I have built an advanced understanding of the four major Microsoft programs; Word, Excel, Access, and PowerPoint.  


I have learned motivational techniques to extend employees willingness to do better. I have practice in motivating a large group of employees, face to face motivation, and even sometimes some of my superiors. There are also times i have had to motivate myself.

All things said, i feel that i stand out among other applicants due to my high amount of experience in many trades and many levels of management. I understand what its like to have a process depend on my ability to motivate. I also understand that finishing a project on time is merely a single task to the whole job. In addition to finishing on time, every venture should be finished with perfection and safety to assure that more projects will be on their way. Happy costumers and a clean safety record are two keys to a successful future. 

I have many interests but i am also capable of choosing my path and setting both short term and long term goals. I am really interested in how marketing works and integrating business marketing on a global scale. What works in our country might help sales in Europe or latin America. Whatever the task, i'm anxious to get involved and become a part of the international marketplace that is quickly merging every country in the world, taking the strengths from each province and surpluses of materials from each country and sharing it with the rest of the world. 


Hard-working, management experienced individual who is up to date with new technology and computer savvy enough to quickly learn newer technology which may assist a companies processes.

I have a history where thinking outside the box was the only way to get the job done. I am a trustworthy employee who is looking for more than just a job. I want to help a company expand globally or if already international, manage the business of international trade and its policies. I have recently become very interested in advertising and how the consumer reacts to the many varieties in the market.

My objective is to begin a career in Global Business management where I can continuously learn skills to improve my understanding of the business, and develop techniques to improve profitability.
