For over 20 years, I advised sports organizations in their media rights, sponsorship and event hosting matters. Most notably, I advised the International Olympic Committee on their global media strategy, host city analysis and US relations for over 15 years. While working at MGM has presented a new and exciting challenge, I greatly miss the world of amateur sports and swimming.
I can now think of no better way to continue my passion than to join USA Swimming.
