About

I work for the PGA TOUR as a Media Archive Specialist after spending 6 years working in the NFL for both the Philadelphia Eagles and NFL Films as a Digital Media Logger. I travel monthly to different tournaments and serve as the Digital Imaging Technician (DIT), where I work as the on-site media manager.

Impact of Ursinus

I’m eternally grateful for my Spanish and LAS experiences at Ursinus. I received phenomenal instruction, which helped me excel at both speaking and writing in Spanish. I additionally developed a great interest in Spanish/Latin American culture and history. Thankfully, my current job enables me to travel to and interact with people who come from various Spanish speaking countries where I continue to put my Spanish communication skills to good use!

I’m forever indebted to the faculty of Ursinus College for shaping me into the individual I am today. I mastered invaluable skills in several different academic disciplines such as History, Latin American Studies, Spanish, and Media and Communications, I utilize every single day in my current role. I was taught to think critically, work diligently, and always push myself to ask tough questions and solve complex problems.
