The Basics

"Please allow me to introduce myself, I'm a man of wealth and taste"

-Mick Jaggar - Sympathy for the Devil,1968

Andrew Whittom is an undergraduate student in the College of Business and the Honors College at the University of South Florida in Tampa, FL.  He is majoring in International Business, a concept that has fascinated him since his childhood growing up in Seattle, Washington.  He made frequent trips to Canada and Mexico which developed his interest in globalization and cultural differences.  In July 1999, Andrew’s father retired which landed him in a planned community in Central Florida.  Eager to find more lively locales, he knew he needed to take up travelling.

In order to finance his plans to travel the world in college, Andrew has worked the grill at a McDonald’s fast-food franchise for three years. He has seen the effects of hard-work on one’s ability to act as a responsible person and has come to value objectivity, respect, and independence above all else. He intends to graduate in the Fall of 2012, pushed back one semester due to study abroad and employment obligations. After graduation, he may choose to attend graduate school or seek a position with the US Department of State; Andrew is, however, always open to opportunities and is constantly assessing his future plans.
