His responsibilities as a project manager include creating detailed presentations and completing complex spreadsheets.
With a unique understanding of finances and business, as well as exceptional artistic and analytical abilities, Sawyer Howitt has accomplished an unbelievable amount at his young age.

He has lead international ethnic studies group, held administrative internships and mentored troubled youth.
