VP of Marketing, Digital Media, and Production
I oversee the digital media department, from video production, to game operations, to marketing.
My work combines:
Day to Day
In sports, you never know what you’re going to be walking into for the day, whether your star player gets injured, or you’re on an eight-game winning streak—it’s never consistent, and there’s a lot that’s out of our control. As I’ve moved up, my day-to-day job has become a bit of a talent management position: I’m overseeing the people who have to take care of all of these moving parts from game to game, and answer the questions when something goes wrong.
Skills & Qualities Beyond School
Treat the people you work with well, and take responsibility for your actions. I’ve been through several ownership changes in this industry, and the people who don’t make it through big transitions are the ones who gossip or pass blame. So if you make good personal connections, and you’re able to put your head down and work hard, you’ll succeed.
Advice for Getting Started
Here's the first step for everyone
What I tell people all the time is, you’ve got to get in on the ground floor. You’re not going to have a personal life, you’re not going to be paid well, but you’re going to be in a position that thousands of other people wanted, so you have to put your head down and do the work. You’re not going to walk in and be named the president of your favorite team; you have to prove that you know this business and this world first.
