I have always loved sports and have worked in the field for much of my career. I attended Columbia University in New York for my undergraduate degree and was the play-by-play radio announcer for the school’s football, basketball and baseball games. I have also been a sportswriter, covering sports stories for a variety of publications. I hold an MBA from USC.
I got my start in the sports business by working as an international relations analyst for New York’s 2012 Olympic Bid. I was a consultant for Chicago’s 2016 bid, and then served on the Board of the Southern California Committee for the Olympic Games during Los Angeles’ successful bid for the 2028 Olympics. I also worked for the Tampa Bay Rays baseball club when we went from the worst team in baseball to a World Series team within three years. I have overseen business development and user acquisition for the ticketing site ScoreBig.com and the grocery app Favado. I also founded the entertainment website ScreenPicks.com and still host a weekly film podcast on the site.
At NCSA, I oversee our business development department, which includes all of our partnerships that bring new customers to NCSA and ancillary revenue. I also oversee business development for our CollegeAdvisor.com business. Companies looking to partner with NCSA and CollegeAdvisor.com can always contact me.
On a personal level, I live in Los Angeles with my wife Sarah, our daughter Sloane, and our two cats.
