My name is Farrell Murphy and I graduated from UNC Chapel Hill in 2014. I am from Charlotte, NC but have lived in New York City the last 4 years working as senior consultant for IBM in the media and entertainment practice. I have a talent for working with people, collaborating, and building relationships. I am also a fanatical student of coffee and whiskey (and could talk for days on either subject if given the opportunity). I also love watching and playing all sports but especially track and field, basketball, and football. I am excited to move to move to LA and start at USC Marshall and be involved in the LGBTQ community!
