Seems that I am one of the last to submit my introductory blog post, so I’ll at least do my best to make it interesting.
First off, my name is Stephen and I will be entering my fourth year (out of five unfortunately) at Fox this coming Fall. I am an accounting major, and I don’t hate it as much as some of my peers. After graduation, I hope to spend some time in public accounting to gain experience, and then eventually start my own firm. My ultimate goal is to drive the success of my own business by helping aspiring entrepreneurs achieve their own goals and aspirations. Win-win if you ask me.
I was born in Astoria, OR, and my family moved to Eugene (Go Ducks) shortly after. I have two older brothers, a mom, a dad, and a ferocious dachshund named Charlie.
As for hobbies, there really is no beginning or end to what I like to do, but a couple of things stand out. First, I love to cook. Italian and French cuisine are my favorites, but I also love to cook Asian food. Second, I love to work on, drive, and race cars. I have built several cars from the ground up, and currently own two cars that I take to track days, drift events, and car meets on a regular basis. Lastly, I love the outdoors. I spend a great deal of time camping, fishing, hunting, and hiking.
I haven’t been anywhere that interesting like the rest of you, but I do share your love of travel. I recently completed a 2000 mile journey with some friends known as the beater bash. The concept is that you by a car for less than 500 dollars, and spend 4 days traveling across the country and getting into shenanigans with your friends (you have no idea how fun it is to play soccer with cars until you actually do it).
Well, I think that is most of what you need to know about me. I’m excited to study with you guys!
P.S. I’m the one in the gray sweater.
