David Andrew “Drew” Peterson
MS Digital Innovation in Marketing, Fox School of Business, Temple University
Thanks for looking at my ePortfolio!
I was born in Brooklyn, New York and grew up in Westbury, Long Island, New York. I currently reside in East Elmhurst in the borough of Queens, and work at NetApp, a multinational storage and data management company as an IT Specialist. I have worked in varied roles of the IT support cycle in the financial industry, media, banking, and education.
My enrollment in the FOX DIM program will be my third degree from Temple University. I had originally enrolled at Temple in 1992 as a scholar-athlete, playing football for the Owls. During that time I earned two degrees while on a full athletic scholarship, a Bachelor of Arts (Political Science/Pre-Law) in 1996, and Masters of Education (Sports Administration & Marketing) in 1998.
I chose the MS Digital Innovation in Marketing because being an IT professional for more than 15 years, I am looking to this program to as a vehicle to augment my previous knowledge, and learn innovations that I can implement to push the boundaries of my career.
Fun Fact: I’m actually David Andrew Peterson, IV (Great-grandfather, grandfather, dad, and me!). My mother didn’t want me to be called “Junior”, so my parents took to calling me by my middle name – Andrew. As friends tend to do while growing up, it got shortened to Drew and I haven’t looked back since. (Andy wasn’t an option! LOL.)
