San Antonio

I'm a San Antonio-born, overseas-raised (for 7 formative years) marketer living in my beautiful hometown...San Antonio, Texas.

Growing up in Japan, I was struck by how easily sports could transcend social, cultural, and lingual barriers. At the time those experiences weren't so obvious to me, but as I grew the importance was revealed. Eventually, the memories of those experiences spurred a love for sports and a desire to learn how sports could create common ground when there seemed to be none.

My first opportunity to learn the "how" came during high school when I spent my junior year as an intern with San Antonio Sports learning the daily marketing & PR grind behind creating events and experiences. As a college student, I leveraged my passion and high school experience to gain acceptance into a competitive Sport Management undergrad program. While completing my degree, I also worked in the marketing division for Aggie Athletics, Texas A&M University's Division I athletics program.

My passion for sports and desire to learn more about how they connect us continues today. I'm always looking for new ways to learn, experience, and enjoy my first love...sports.
