As a seasoned sports executive, I’ve seen it all in more than 27 years in sports management, in a career that’s spanned six different ownership groups in seven different media markets.
I served as Senior Vice President of Communications for the Washington Redskins football franchise. I’ve helped guide the Rams through their 1995 transition from Los Angeles to St. Louis, as well as the relocation and renaming of the Tennessee Titans. I was one of the first hires of the expansion Houston Texans in 2000, building the new franchise’s image even during the two years prior to the team’s first game in 2002. I am the only executive in the NFL to have won the Pete Rozelle Award with three different teams.
More recently, I served as the Regional President & Managing Director of the Special Olympics, overseeing program operations in North America, Canada, and the Caribbean, and while with the organization I provided strategic direction and engagement with the public and private sector to raise awareness and gain support. I also led fundraising efforts for the region.
Along the way, I’ve obtained a bachelor’s degree from Texas Southern University and an MBA from Rice University.
But all that experience only matters because of the relationships I’ve fostered over decades with the world’s greatest athletes and savvy owners, exceptional journalists, and visionary agents and recruiters.
At the end of the day, I believe in the power of sports to help boys and girls become exceptional men and women. I believe in leadership. I believe in your capacity to live life to the fullest.
If you believe in these ideas, let’s talk.
