Experience

Summary

I accomplished everything I dreamed of by 26, but it all meant nothing. I burned out leading content and marketing strategy for some of the world's biggest sporting brands (U.S. Soccer, Chicago Blackhawks, Los Angeles Rams), so I quit and went on my own.

Work history

Founder & CEO
We're on a mission to tell impactful stories to inspire change. We've been to Alaska to film a documentary about a church with a daring vision, promoted books and albums, innovated non-profit donor mailers, and more in our first year.
Content Manager
My team (social, web, written, video, photography, graphics, etc.) strategized and executed high-level content for the U.S. Men's, Women's, Youth, Paralympic, and many other National Teams, covering World Cups, Olympics, Copa America, and more.
Media Relations Coordinator
I managed print, digital, and social media coverage for the 2015 Stanley Cup champion Chicago Blackhawks.
Managing Editor
I take full credit for the Rams Super Bowl run as the person who led the team's content strategy, hiring my team from the ground up, as the team on the field began to excel.

Portfolio

U.S. Soccer Rebrand

I played a significant role in U.S. Soccer's complete rebranding project in February 2016, leading all digital and content executions. Our efforts received praise from multiple national outlets, including The New York Times, for unveiling the new look through VR mailers.

The Journey, presented by Budweiser

I created and produced a new video series, "The Journey", on behalf of U.S. Soccer and in paid partnership with Budweiser to give fans a behind-the-scenes look at their favorite U.S. Men's National Team players both with and away from the National Team.

14 Stories feat. the U.S. Paralympic National Soccer Team

Now these guys have some stories. This was my favorite project with U.S. Soccer. I ideated and produced this quick-turn series profiling each of the 14 players on the U.S. Paralympic National Team ahead of the 2016 Summer Paralympic Games.

Greatest Show on Turf Celebration

I ideated and created a first-of-its-kind web experience to celebrate the 15th anniversary of the St. Louis Rams' Super Bowl XXXIV victory vs. the Tennessee Titans. I worked with NFL Network to create an entire day of programming, including a live 90-minute primetime special, to celebrate our work.
