I play tight end, fullback, and on special teams for the Tennessee Titans of the NFL. We just played our second game of the season and are 1-1. In the off seasons, I'm pursuing a career in wealth management. I've done two internships at Wachovia, one on the sales-and-trading floor with investment-grade bonds and one in a brokerage retail firm, where I worked with a broker and also learned about financial advising. I passed the Series 7 exam and am licensed to work on the trading floor or as an investment banker.
