What is your story?
I launched FuelCell Supplements, an online sports supplement company my junior year at UNL. I worked with a team of experts to develop an innovative pre-workout product: Boost Pre-Workout. In addition to product development I've grown a team of brand ambassadors and leveraged online marketing/social media to grow my business. I have been active in various business ventures since my youth and have a continuous drive to learn. I received my undergraduate degree from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln where I was active in the Engler Entrepreneurship Program and competed in UNL New Venture Competition. Since graduation I have acquired my license to sell Real Estate in Nebraska and am working in the Real Estate/Investment industry to implement new technology and powerful online marketing tactics to acquire/close deals and network with new clients.
