As a diehard sports fan now in my sixth year with ESPN, I often feel the need to pinch myself. Since the 49ers didn’t have a need for a 6-foot wideout with below average speed, I happily settled for the next best thing – spearheading media relations efforts for the X Games and West Coast publicity at the worldwide leader. A graduate of the University of Utah, I got my foot in the sports door during the 2002 Salt Lake City Winter Olympics as part of the Nike Communications team. From there I made the jump into entertainment PR, working on television and special events publicity at an agency in Los Angeles. During my agency days, I was fortunate to have the opportunity to work on several ESPN scripted projects, X Games and the ESPYs. As an avid fan of all traditional stick and ball sports, I still say it’s tough to beat an early morning run of snowboarding on a powder day at the Winter X Games. Whether working an event in LA, Aspen or Shanghai, I can without hesitation say that I’m proud and blessed to work with such a talented and passionate group of pros.
