Communications Manager, ESPN

A native of Los Angeles, I never envisioned myself working at ESPN. Raised in the sun, sand and surf, I would freeze in the “wintery mix” of Bristol, Conn. Plus, I love living in a place where I can snowboard in the morning and make it back to Malibu in time for a sunset surf session. Graduating from USC in 2008, I joined ESPN’s Global X Events & Development group as a PR intern. Ten years and many events later, I can unequivocally say I have one of the coolest jobs in the world. I have been a part of some of the highest-rated and most successful X Games events to date, have been blinded by flashes in the paparazzi room at the ESPYs and met some amazing people along the way. Living in Aspen for two weeks during Winter X Games ain’t bad either…
