I joined ESPN Communications in September 2006. My primary focus is SportsCenter and ESPN’s news platforms, along with #SCFeatured. My duties with ESPN also include our golf and Formula 1 coverage. I spent 2007-2014 responsible for Communications activities for ESPN’s NASCAR coverage, and much of my career has been spent working in motorsports (I was in NASCAR’s PR department for 15 years). I live in Florida, only a few miles from Daytona International Speedway.
