He was able to complete an internship assisting with the administration of a summer baseball camp for children and develop leadership skills, which have proven beneficial in his pursuit of dual degrees in sport management and entrepreneurship. He hopes eventually to coach baseball at the high school level, in addition to owning his own business.
