Currently enjoying my time with Sideline Software, Inc. where my tasks vary with Mike, Kevin, Tony and Julie run a top-notch business, and I continue to be impressed by their detail on a daily basis.
It’s quite refreshing after my time with, in which I learned a lot on what doesn’t make a business successful. Still, I wouldn’t trade my time with Liberty Sports Interactive for anything, as it helped me to determine what want out of life – both professionally and personally.
Before Fanball, I served in a two-man team that led Mock Draft Central from startup to award-winning, profitable company that competed with media heavyweights.
During that time, I’ve made many valuable relationships and gained the trust and respect of most who I’ve come in contact with due to my non-stop work ethic and determination to make sure even the smallest of details is running 110 percent smoothly.
In the Winter of 2009. It was an honor to have my peers in the Fantasy Sports industry elect me to the Fantasy Sports Trade Association (FSTA) Board of Directors and to be a finalist for a Fantasy Sports Writers Association (FSWA) award for Best Humor Article. At 31 years of age, I feel my already vast knowledge and experience within the industry, ability to connect with the public, ability to multitask with many different duties.
