I am a Senior Publicist based in Los Angeles, with most of my work focusing on ESPN’s action sports property, X Games. After working at an Austin-based PR agency that handled work for one of X Games’ former venues, Circuit of the Americas, I made a connection with who would ultimately become my boss, Danny Chi, Director of Communications for X Games. I joined ESPN full time in October 2016, and it’s been a wild ride filled with business trips to Aspen and Minneapolis, along with additional work on Special Olympics, SportsNation, Jalen & Jacoby and more. I’m a proud Seminole and graduated from Florida State University in December 2014.
