I am currently the Social Media Manager for the NFL overseeing all 32 teams and their Social Media channels. I started my career working for MTV Networks (NY)  in Standards & Practices, screening all television and digital programming for Comedy Central, SpikeTV, and LOGO. Having an interest in sports, I left MTV for an opportunity at CSTV (College Sports Television, now CBS College Sports), where I managed 25+ streaming athletic websites.  My position at CSTV(NY) led me into the digital space, where I learned I had a strong interest in technology and its ability to leverage sports and entertainment.  I then left NY for Chicago and oversaw digital video programming for mobile and Internet platforms at Intersport.   After Chicago, I moved to LA for a position at the NFL.  I began as an Account Manager for the NFL’s Club Sites and handled the onboarding of 6 team websites.  In September, I moved into the role of Social Media manager. Ideas expressed here are my own.
