I handle PR for ESPN Radio, espnW, technology, remote operations and soccer. I received my undergraduate degree from Dartmouth College and my Master’s degree from the University of Southern California Annenberg School for Communication & Journalism. Sports have always been a passion of mine, and everywhere I have lived has played a role in the teams I follow: I grew up in Texas where I was born and bred a Dallas Cowboys fan; a college study-abroad program in Barcelona, Spain fostered a fanatic love for FC Barcelona and gave me the unforgettable experience of watching a few games in the Camp Nou; a period of living in the San Francisco Bay area made me partial to the Oakland A’s ($2 Tuesdays and Dollar Dogs may have helped) and the Golden State Warriors; and my time as a graduate student at USC made me a Trojan for life.
Outside The Lines (Tuesday, 1 p.m. ET, ESPN) will air the first television interview with Kevin O’Neal, the best friend of Cardell Hayes, the man accused of shooting and killing former NFL star Will Smith.
