I have lived in Sacramento for almost three years now, and have very much enjoyed my time here. I am the Marketing and Special Events Coordinator for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Sacramento, and have been a Big Brother mentor for over a year and a half now. I am a member of the Young Professionals Committee (YPC), a group of dedicated individuals that do additional outreach and fund raising for Big Brothers Big Sisters. Previous to my work with Big Brothers and Big Sisters, I worked in radio broadcasting for seven and a half years. I have my degree in Communication Studies from San Francisco State University and just recently finished my studies toward a 2nd BA in Philosophy at CSU Sacramento. I am a member of the CSUS chapter of Phi Alpha Delta (co-ed, professional, pre-law fraternity). I am also a proud participant of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society's TEAM IN TRAINING. I am currently training for my second marathon in support of LLS.

And I need a lot of them. That is, I need men to step up and do some good in our community by becoming a Big Brother mentor. Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Greater Sacramento Area is looking for volunteers to mentor youth in our program.
