Text Exchange

VP, Co-founder

An associate and I started myTextExchange.com, a website where college students at USF can sell textbooks to each other without third party fees, which helped to keep the price of textbooks low. I developed a marking strategy that encouraged buying used books over new books as a way to reduce carbon emissions. I also organized a book drive which the company co-sponsored with the Worldwide Book Drive organization to send books to children in Third World countries.

Career

PoliticalWave

CEO, Founder

I successfully launched the news website Political-Wave.com (it now resides at http://poliwave.wordpress.com). The purpose of the website was to increase political awareness of local and state politics among college students. The site consisted of analysis and opinion articles published daily covering issues that effect Tampa Bay, USF, and college students. As CEO, I managed a staff of twelve including the writers and an editor. I developed and maintained the website, as well as contribute to site content by writing weekly articles. I also developed a social media marketing campaign using Twitter and Facebook to increase viewership and awareness in our target market.

Rick Scott for Governor

Intern

Worked as a paid political intern for Florida Governor Rick Scott. Made campaigning phone calls from a database of likely voters. Went on precinct walks to survey voters in certain areas, provide information on the candidate, and answer questions about the candidates stance on particular political issues. I was also able to gain insight on the structuring of a well-organized political campaign and the importance of dedicated and professional office staff.
