BC Alumni Lands Dream Job in LA

It started as a daydream in Mrs. Ratchford's ninth period English class. As he learned the ins and outs of the English language, David Romani could envision his future: a future that involved creative talent. And his "go big or go home" motto that he's lived since graduation has helped him land his dream job: working in film and television productions for Universal Studios. He’ll move to Los Angeles to begin that career in January 2018.

David's "go big or go home" motto started after college at Pitt, where he majored in marketing and accounting with a minor in law. Even with those impressive credentials, David had a voice in the back of his head telling him to follow his dreams and become a creative.

"Listening to that voice was the best thing I ever did," he said. "From that point on, I started to embrace one of my core mottos that I still follow to this day, which is 'never to settle'."

And settle he didn't. David walked away from the idea of becoming a lawyer to follow his destiny; a journey that led him to study at the top creative advertising graduate program in the world at The Miami Ad School at Florida International University.

"I've had the opportunity to work with people, agencies, and brands from all around the world," he said.

David explains that he specializes in copywriting, content creation, and productions. He's had the opportunity to work first hand with Global Chief Creative Officers from some of the biggest names in advertising--including AirBnb Global, ACT Productions, and, most recently, the NFL.

"After months of preparation, I was fortunate enough to be able to pitch the NFL and its executives, production company, and higher ups for the NFL Experience for Super Bowl 2020 in Miami," he said. "This was an opportunity I didn't expect to have for at least another ten years in my career."

The executives got back to David to let them know that his pitch had been selected, and his integrated experience will be present at the 2020 Super Bowl.

"As if I hadn't been blessed enough, I will also be working hand in hand with the NFL's production company over the next two years to gear up for this once-in-a-lifetime event in celebrating 100 years of the NFL at Super Bowl LIV," he added.

While David works in creative advertising, he says that his heart will always lie in writing and productions. This year, he took the next step as a writer by publishing his first book--a children's book--called A Fruit's Tale. It's part one of a three-part children's book series.

"I'm a big believer that one of the most important things you can do is give back to our youth," he said. "That's one of the reasons I was an assistant soccer coach at BC for half a decade, and that's the reason I'm writing these books now."

David will also be releasing my new book on creativity and conscious in 2018.

"I guess you could say the writing is just beginning," he said.

David credits his Bishop Carroll experience for much of his success.

"I am so thankful for the education and experiences Bishop Carroll offered me," he said. "BC is one of the main reasons I am the person I am today.

He says that his experiences both in and out the classroom. He was a member of the boys' Huskies soccer team that won the school's first District Six title. He says that his experience in the classroom and on the soccer field at BC was life-changing.

"The school community taught me what it means to strive for your goals, and that there is no such thing as impossible," he said. "Most importantly, though, BC taught me what it means to be a family. Four years isn't that long by any means, but if you do it right, you'll have friends that last a lifetime."
