Public Relations


My name is written above, and I am the fourth out of five boys in the my family. I was born on September 16, 1993 in Poway, California but have lived most of my life in Olympia, Washington up until I moved over to Cheney for school. I came to Eastern to play football and do originally get my degree in exercise science but things changed and now am in the field of public relations. I will be graduating from here on June 17 with my public relations major and a minor in psychology. I have a job lined up for after graduation at Maxim Healthcare where I will be a healthcare recruiter.

A Story

The day where I professed my love to the girl that I decided I wanted to spend forever with was one to remember. You guys are saying, “How cheesy” to yourself but you are going to look back at this for input one day, so you’re welcome. Ladies, well I don’t think I need to say anything cause I can already see the water welling up in your eyes and I haven’t even started yet. It was my senior day for the Eastern Washington football team so although the attention was directed toward me, it was a perfect cover up to devise the perfect plan. Cassidy, my now fiancè, got surprised by hopping into a car with one of her closest friends where they got to spend a few minutes together and her friend got to love on her before they were met at another location by another friend. This trend continued until she was surprised by her parents at the last stop before she got to me. An emotional time for them, but what a foreshadowing of her parents giving her away to me in that moment. I was then waiting for her with candles lit, and in the background, my little brother signing a beautiful song. We danced, I popped the question and now my life is full of making decisions for the upcoming day.
