I joined ESPN in 1997 in San Diego as part of the newly-formed X Games team and event - one that was only two years old. Sixteen years later, I am proud to have started on this brand from the ground floor and still be doing PR for the X Games as it expands globally. I'm responsible for the X Games in Aspen and Munich and all that is included in running media operations at an event. My other PR duties also include athlete relations, Disney synergy, sponsorship PR fulfillment and corporate outreach. As part of the X Games team, I used to move every two years to live in the host city, but now call Colorado home and work in our ESPN Denver office.
