I create, write, & produce content about professional esports games globally.
Communicating / Sharing Stories
Day to Day
I read the gamer news globally for about 2 hours in the morning to prep for the day. Then, I typically have interviews and meetings with investors and strategic partners. I also do some writing of my own and supervise over 150 stories from my staff of writers.
Advice for Getting Started
Here's the first step for everyone
Walk in with a focus that you know what you want to do and you are willing to learn. Give an example of how you've made a difference in the past (at work, school, personal life). Don't be afraid to promote yourself. In terms of getting in the door-- send out emails, use friend connections, meet people, and ask questions to see if they can introduce you. Work is almost always achieved through personal connections, especially in entertainment and news. Offer to intern for free for a month!
