I’m a junior concentrating on Economics, Strategy, & Computer Science with aspirations that include graduate school, social impact, and a wonderful family. I spent the first 14 years of my life in Boston before moving to Florida, where after several formative years of nondenominational Christianity, I was baptized at 19 and headed to California to study at Pepperdine University. The values of purpose, service, and leadership were instilled in my heart so deeply there that I left after sophomore year to serve in the Italy Rome Mission. I’m grateful to say that the words of a friend that were true for me at Pepperdine have been true here at BYU as well: “The friends you form in college can be some of the great enrichments of your whole life.” I love adventure, beach volleyball, swimming, line dancing, singing, speaking Italian, and seeing the sunrise. I believe that success is discovering God’s will for our lives and pursuing it with zeal. I’m passionate about making your experience at BYU as memorable as mine has been!
I am a senior at BYU from Arcadia, California. I come from a family of 6 kids and a great mother and father who were also Cougars back in their day. My best accomplishment at BYU (or anywhere) was marrying my wife in April of 2020, Maryn Smyth. I am a double major in Economics and Applied Statistics, with a minor in Strategic Management, and I have absolutely loved the Economics program and the education I have received so far here from the Econ faculty. If I’m not at school or spending time with my wife, I’m usually playing pickup basketball in a nearby church gym or the RB. I also love music and play the piano, trumpet, and electric guitar. I am excited to be a part of the ESA presidency this year most especially because I have loved the relationships and friendships I have found in the Econ program, and I want to expand that circle by meeting and getting to know as many more students as I can this last year of college. Please don’t hesitate to say hi or reach out to me for any reason at all. Go Cougs!
I am a Junior studying Economics and Russian. I am from the Bay Area, California. In my free time I love to edit film projects for fun and also enjoy playing the violin in orchestras and various ensembles. One thing I've come to love about the Econ major is the community that we have so I am very excited to help strengthen and build it even more this year!
I am doing a double major in economics and political science and minoring in international development. I am the program director for the Kaiizen Foundation. I could not be happier with my decision to study economics. It has provided me the best professors and so many amazing opportunities. I love soccer, the World Cup, traveling, and most any sport. I am excited to work alongside each of you to make your journey through the economics major a success.
I am a Junior studying Economics and Business. I am from San Jose, CA and love to play golf, play basketball and wakesurf. I am always interested in a game of Yahtzee or Settlers of Catan. There are so many different career paths that Economics students can choose from, and I am excited to help club members connect with a variety of options this year!
I am a senior in the Economics program with a Mathematics minor. I grew up on Bainbridge Island, Washington where I love kayaking, exploring forests, finding ways to help the environment, and country dancing with my brother. I served a mission in Romania and studied abroad in Brussels, Belgium which came to be the two best experiences I've ever had. I am grateful to be at BYU where some of my favorite classes have included: Russian Literature, Bollywood dance, Irish dance, Organ skills and Econ 110 with Kearl. I could talk for days about Economics being the best major at BYU, and hope to be able to share everything is has to offer!
I am a senior from Kaysville, Ut (Go Darts!). I love to ski, road-bike, and game with my friends. Although my major never changed, I have considered pursuing a broad spectrum of careers; law, cybersecurity, impact investing, consulting. You name it! So feel free to contact me if you are still wondering what you want to do after graduation, or if you just want to talk! I'd love to help.
