His favorite part about Duluth is being so close to Lake Superior and all the well-maintained hiking trails in the area.  

When he was 15, he started finding golf balls and selling them online to golfers around the Twin Cities area. This launched his interest in Marketing and Sales because it was satisfying to effectively reach a target group of customers on his own while also making some money in the process. This fall he looks to build off his college coursework and prior business experience.

He is very excited to be working with the Duluth Huskies this fall as the Special Projects and Social Media Intern. He is most looking forward to sharing his creative ideas and making every Husky home game a fun, unique experience.
