A Southern Wyomingite

ABOUT ME
Hi Everyone, my name is Chance Wright. I am a Digital Marketing Concentration MBA Graduate student at RIT graduating in May 2019. I did my Undergraduate degree which is a BFA in Advertising Photography at RIT as well.
I am originally from a small town called BigHorn, Wyoming. I lived there until high school where I left for a boarding school in New Hampshire called Holderness School. During this time I also moved to Northern Virginia. At Holderness, I found RIT and came for the photography program, and I have been here ever since. 
In conjunction to school, I am also the Vice President and Co-Founder of a Non-Profit called The Shore Foundation. I have an active photography business, specializing in landscape, architecture, and nature photography. I started my own company, ATL/WYO Productions, which is a film and television production company, which I plan to run after graduation in LA. Lastly, I am a New York State firefighter in the town of Chili, NY.

THE SHORE FOUNDATION
We are a certified 501(c)(3) Non-Profit in New York State. Our mission is to provide computers into the hands of those in need. Founded between myself and my roommates in the Spring of 2018, we have successfully given away ~20 computers to high school age students who were unable to purchase them themselves. We plan to attempt to set the Guinness World Record for most computers donated in 24 hours, with a mass donation event where we will give away somewhere around 500 computers. I encourage you to visit our website and learn more about the cause, as well as ways in which you can help. 

MY HOBBIES
In my little free time that I do get, I do have a few hobbies which I love to do. I am a recreational skydiver and speed flyer. I skydive out west of Rochester near a town called Barre, NY. Speedflying, which is similar to paragliding is practiced in mountainous areas with steep slopes and little trees.

I am Experienced.

Through interning at Wegmans in their consumer research department, I gained valuable insight about decision-making on the client-side of marketing consumer products. I developed understanding of reaching the customers’ needs and creating value that is relevant to them.

The KJT Group provided me with an excellent internship experience, where I worked in a team to research various healthcare markets and provide insight to clients. I learned new skills in quantitative and qualitative research methods and helped to ensure accuracy throughout all steps of the research process.

I am Driven.

Could I have received my undergraduate degree and immediately enter the workforce? Yes. Did I choose to do that? Nope. I am pursuing my MBA and Rochester Institute of Technology in the Saunders School of Business, which is AACSB Accredited. Through this reputable university I hope to utilize my new learnings in the career path I will begin upon graduating. I chose to stay focused and grow my education before beginning my career journey.

I am a Leader.

Experience on the Leadership Team of the International Sorority, Delta Phi Epsilon has given me the experience to coordinate teams and contribute to solving problems that face an organization overall. I was the Vice President of Programming, coordinating various community service and philanthropy events and working with the leadership team to make organization-wide decisions.  

So What?

I want to work in Market Research. This is for two important reasons:

  1. I am a natural when it comes to numbers. Math has always been my favorite subject, so much so that I made it a minor in my undergraduate program. Quantitative studies are satisfying to me, in that you can make realistic, applicable determinations based on numbers and data about consumers. I find that awesome. I hate uncertainty and market research helps bridge that gap.
  2. I am naturally nosey. I always want to know what is going on in other people’s heads, and I think that is necessary in this field. You need to want to understand what the people want, and research helps to do just that. What do the customers want? And why? I am determined to find out.
