Get to Know Me

What’s up Gentlemen,

I am a junior double majoring in Marketing (with an emphasis on Digital & Integrated Marketing Communications) and Sports Business. I currently serve as the President of Sigma Nu here at Arizona State. I grew up in North Phoenix and played baseball throughout my childhood. I loved baseball, but due to a couple of unfortunate injuries, I couldn’t make much out of it. Through my physical therapy I became very interested in exercise science and spent a lot of time researching it on my own and ended up getting certified as a personal trainer. With that, I started working at ASU and I am now a Head Trainer at the Sun Devil Fitness Complex.

Before coming to college I never planned on rushing at all due to my family giving me the stereotypical negative view upon fraternities and Greek Life as a whole. However, during my senior year of high school, my best friend’s older brother, who happened to be the President of Sigma Nu at the time convinced me otherwise. I still wasn’t in full belief, but I promised I would at least come to rush and check it out. After the first day of rush, through talking to various members of the fraternity, I realized he was 100% right. Sigma Nu really was different. From the genuine authenticity I experienced in talking to so many members, to learning about the strong emphasis on leadership, academics, and on campus involvement I was sold. Before I knew it, rush was over and I had a bid to pledge Sigma Nu, and without really even knowing what I was getting myself into, I came to realize it was the best decision of my life.

After initiation I quickly got involved and served as the Risk Management Officer during my first semester active. I loved the leadership role and took on another position the following year, which then led to me becoming President. I could not be more honored to represent this organization!

The best piece of advice I have to offer to anyone who is on the fence about rushing and isn’t sure if it’s for you or not - just check it out. Go to rush, explore the options, and give yourself the chance to find out for yourself if Greek Life is really for you or not. I can definitely assure you, however, that rushing Sigma Nu be a decision that you will not regret.
