Chris Ostrander

Orchard Park, NY

I'm a sports enthusiast with a bachelor's degree in communication from John Carroll University (08). My previous work experience includes the Buffalo Sabres, Buffalo Bandits and NBC's Olympic broadcast crew.

My time with the Sabres and Bandits included winning the 2009 National Lacrosse League PR Representative of the Year award for my efforts with the Bandits. I served as a statistician throughout the men's and women's hockey tournaments during the 2010 Winter Olympics before returning home and beginning my career with Bryant & Stratton College.

After beginning my time at Bryant & Stratton College in the admissions department, I now serve as a Marketing Specialist for the school. My duties include producing web content, managing the social media strategy for the school's 19 campuses along with coordinating other tasks and responsibilities within the department. My tenure with Bryant & Stratton College extends five years after beginning with the school in late 2010.

I also do freelance writing and media relations work for the American Collegiate Hockey Association and Great Skate Hockey. My blog, Two in the Box, focuses on Buffalo sports and downtown development. I have a passion for writing, my city and sports and my alma mater.
