Dynasty Athlete Representation

UF student heads up, co–founds sports managing agency

I was thoroughly honored to have my name and the name of Dynasty Athlete Representation in YOUNG MONEY magazine earlier this week.  It truly shows just how far Dynasty has come in such a short amount of time.  But today, I woke up and have not been able to smiling since.  I don’t know what it is, but there is something very special about having a write-up based on you and your company in your school’s newspaper.  I attended the University of Florida for four years as an undergrad, earning a Bachelors of Arts in Political Science with Minors in Mass Communications and Geography (very applicable to sports agency, right?) and am currently in my second year as a law student at UF.  Us undergrad/post-grad Gators call ourselves “Double Gators”.  We bleed orange and blue and truly love everything about the Gator Nation.  Maybe that is why I am so excited about today’s story in the Independent Florida Alligator (UF’s main newspaper): UF student heads up, co–founds sports managing agency.

Not only were myself and Dynasty featured in the paper, but I have to truly thank David Cumming, who painted an amazing picture of what Dynasty and I embody.  He found the YOUNG MONEY article and contacted me on Tuesday to set up the interview, which took place late afternoon yesterday.  In a short turnaround time, he was able to write the piece, which I cannot wait to look back to many years down the line.  One of my goals with Dynasty is to create a strong foundation of clients in the state of Florida, but more specifically, UF.  Hopefully, this article in the Alligator is a start at getting our name out to the university that I love.
