Why do you have a career in the sports industry?

I grew up playing sports and knew at an early age that i wanted to be part of it in some way when I no longer played the game.

What is the best part of working in sports?

Working with some of the brightest minds and being challenged every day to be my best. I see sports in a completely different way compared to the casual fan.

Advice for people trying to break into the sports industry?

Figure out exactly what you want to do in the sports industry, find people that do what you’re interested in, network with them, get to know them and their job, find an opportunity wherever it may be to get into the industry (particularly with internships) and keep networking like crazy. Soak up everything like a sponge.
