About Duncan
I am a Junior from Chesapeake, Virginia majoring in Business Administration with a concentration in Sports Business and a minor in Digital Arts. I am currently serving in the role of Vice President of Culture for the Warsaw Sports Business Club, and I am excited to have our most successful year yet!

I hail from the East Coast, but am a second generation Duck behind my father who's career in the Navy has taken me all over the world while living in Asan, Guam and Naples, Italy earlier in my life. When I arrived on campus two years ago I quickly learned the WSBC was the family for me, and my passion for sport has only grown stronger.

I have been lucky enough to gain valuable experience so far at Oregon while interning with the Student Alumni Association as a Graphic Design Intern, with Youth Movement as a Design Director, and currently as an Ambassador with Oregon Football and a Fan Experience Intern with the UO Athletic Department.

I follow almost all sports, but am a huge fan of the Seahawks, Ducks and Spurs!
