Major: Labor & Industrial Relations
Accolades: Philanthropic Affairs Chair of the 1994 Penn State Dance Marathon the FIRST EVER Student-run philanthropy to raise over ONE MILLION DOLLARS.
As a Beta Theta Pi, I was a 4-term Social Chairman and worked for the Center for the Performing Arts Marketing Department with mentors that are now among the elite in their respective industries and organizations.
In 1996, after graduating college, I was hired by WDW Casting (recruiting/hiring). I received my Mousters and Ducktorate in Business through the Advanced College Program. After a year in Casting I transferred to WDW Golf and worked for all 99 Holes of Golf, The PGA Tour Events and was LOW MEDALIST in my PGA Playing Ability Test Tournament t o become eligible to become a PGA Golf Professional in September of 1999.
In 2001, I followed my favorite Class A, Certified PGA Golf Professional to Orlando's "Best Kept Secret"- Orange Tree Country Club in the heart of Dr. Phillips, Orlando which is known as the "Sister Course" to the famous Arnold Palmer's Bay Hill Club and Lodge. As the off-season home of the Atlanta Braves, I got to know superstar athletes like Greg Maddux, Tom Glavine, Steve Avery and my favorite... John Smoltz. I also have to humbly brag about playing rounds with the likes of Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson and Arnold Palmer.
As VP of Sales of Leisure Time Displays / Stellar Proposal for the premier Yardage Books on Golf Carts and Hotel Marketing Company from 2003 to 2005 I personally laser-measured some of the most beautiful courses in the United States. Living in the house closest to Mr. Palmer at Bay Hill was the greatest perk of working for this company who had one of the first 6-figure Digital Printers in
As creator of The Forecaddie Radio Show, a self-funded AM Sports Radio Show on The Orlando Sports Leader, 740 The Game I not only made the show profitable but created the blueprint for many others to follow. With a strategy that utilized Trade in Lieu of cash we acquired more sponsors by turning their valuable trade certs into the cash that paid for the show's production and turn a healthy profit. The Forecaddie aired on CBS, iHeart, Clear Channel and ESPN in Orlando AND Tampa Bay.
Golf Marketing Services, LLC headed by Holly Geoghegan is the premier Golf Marketing Agency in the Golf Industry. My mentor and Company Owner, Holly "G" Geoghegan - Host & Producer As a former director of communications for the LPGA Tour, Holly G is wired into the golf industry. President of Golf Marketing Services since 1992 and a founding member of the International Network of Golf (ING), her contacts reach far and wide across the golf world.
I was part of the opening team for the prestigious Orlando Grande Lakes Property in Orlando. As a VIP Caddie Concierge, I was the Caddie for the likes of Michael Jordan, Annika Sorenstam and Greg Norman. The Ritz-Carlton ideals and exemplary service standards are deeply instilled in me to this time and will be for life.
Orlando's Premier Country Club and home to such famous figures as Tiger Woods, Bubba Watson, Ken Griffey, Jr and Shaquille O'Neal is next to impossible to play on without a member. When they did manage to get a tee-time, it was my job to assign a VIP Caddie Concierge or personally escort those privileged guests around the absolutely stunning 18 holes of challenging golf.
Loudmouth Golf was my client when I was Golf Marketing Services and I became their first Sales Rep, Special Ops Director, New Biz Dev and finally Specialty Designs and Corporate Sponsorships Director. My years with Loudmouth were how I became connected to a long list of celebrities that I hope to put to good use for my future endeavors. I created the new famous advertising on pants aka "Walking Billboards" made famous by such icons as Bill Murray who rocked to original PBR Pants which "broke the internet".
When I decided to create a 100% Micro-Poly Infusion High quality product that was a major upgrade to Loudmouth's Cotton/Spandex material which faded, shrunk and was made in China instead of the Philippines which made us the Premier Custom Apparel Company. Not only was quality better, but the name caught on like wildfire. Clients like Corona, Modelo, T-Mobile, Yuengling, First Tee , Porsche Club of America and Mike's Hard Lemonade are clients that regardless of the new entity name, know we can be trusted to provide the highest quality "blow the belt" custom apparel on the market.
I did 250+ Postmates deliveries as an experiment to gauge the viability of the "Special Delivery Courier" business. Not only did I come to the conclusion that is this is "The New Normal" - I consider these delivery drivers the Heroes of the non-medical Pandemic frontline. Curbside Pickup has officially been mastered by restaurants, eateries and other essential businesses that most likely wouldn't have set-up their curbside strategy if it wasn't for the infamous COVID-19 Virus Pandemic that hit us hard in 2929.
I was chosen as one of the 6 (out of hundreds) of Postmates Drivers in Florida to become a Brand Ambassador to expand the presence, service and quality of what is going to be a Billion Dollar industry and a permanent presence in the future. Now, I am the ONLY one of the six to have an ongoing relationship with them because not only did i successfully execute the first Marketing Project, I play "the cleaner" to those on the team who haven't seen their projects through and hope to help reduce the number of those people in the future utilizing my experience in strategic hiring.
