Melissa Rawlins

I was born and raised in the nutmeg state of Connecticut. After high school, I started my own photography business specializing in family portraits and weddings. Three years ago, this December, I was fortunate enough to land a job within my own back yard; photographer/editor at ESPN. By joining the ESPN Images team, I’ve learned how to deliver amazing employee and commentator stories from a unique and photographic perspective. Growing up, I’ve always enjoyed watching documentaries and reading human interest pieces. My love of storytelling is fulfilled in a place like ESPN where we get to tell stories internally (InsideESPN) and externally (ESPN Front Row). I am thankful to be part of an amazing team that touches various aspects of the company from the inside out.
