I have worked in the retail sporting goods industry with a focus on outdoor sports for 15 years. Starting out in part time sales and working my way up to a buyers position. Now buying product for 6 categories. This has allowed me to gain knowledge of various aspects of business,such as management, inventory management, profit margin, gross profits, merchandising strategies, forecasting, over head control, as well as build strategic relationships with vendors. I have played sports my whole life with my passions in baseball, and hockey, and look forward to continuing to grow my talents and opportunity.
