Career

Latinos Post

Sports Reporter

I live-blogged Super Bowl XLVII, leading to multiple first-page search results on Google for Colin Kaepernick-related queries. I also turned the LP Facebook page into a discussion forum after it had been used exclusively as an RSS hub. I provided an actionable list of suggestions to fix common problems for the year-old startup, mostly behind-the-scenes changes for reporters’ & editors’ structure. In writing my articles, I utilized SEO best practices to challenge large sports media properties for hits on news stories and created smaller related niches for topic dominance.

Worcester Tornadoes

Marketing Manager, Broadcaster

Jose I could see at the ballpark at night.
Jose Canseco was a member of the 2012 Tornadoes squad. I was in charge of arranging and supervising his interviews. Contact me if you'd like to hear some of the lyrics to the twice-performed song featuring that first line.

I reworked the team's entire online presence with some help from our Graphic Design Intern and a pair of media MVPs (all of whom I directed).

As the Press Box Czar, I was in charge of a staff of eight people during the workday and at the park. (Maybe I'm being a bit hard on myself in describing my leadership style.)

I designed the pocket schedule, magnet schedule, program and many other marketing materials before the 2011 and 2012 seasons. I starting handling the team's Facebook, Twitter and YouTube accounts the day I started working in Worcester.

During the baseball season, I handled all broadcast, media relations, marketing and sponsorship fulfillment duties for the Tornadoes.

I started a LinkedIn Group for business partners and fans of the club which you can find here: http://.linkedin.com/groups/Worcester-Tornadoes-Business-Partners-Fans-3869742?mostPopular=&gid=3869742

Hudson Valley Renegades

Radio Broadcaster, New Media Manager

My experience working for the Renegades was the broadest of my jobs so far in my career. I took a wide scope in the application process, and was happy to see that it paid off more than I could have imagined. I signed up for broadcasting and took on a full-time position using social media (among other tasks). Here's my equivalent of the duty gauntlet:

I was the #1 Play-by-Play Broadcaster for the team, as well as the host of Renegades On Deck, a live on-field Pre-Game Show. I organized advertisement placement in our broadcasts and created advertising packages for them too. I discovered over 100 spots for potential sponsors to advertise over the airwaves.

The team’s online presence (the Blog, Facebook, Twitter and YouTube pages) were laden with interactive content, discussions and prizes that I created independently or in conjunction with other departments (like some of our ticket video contests).

The Renegades had a few of their promotions and other bold moves publicized on Fanhouse and Ben’s Biz Blog thanks to my efforts.

In addition to the work that was part of my official job description, I also:
-Sold tickets through Glitnir Ticketing System
-Created & Developed Ideas for Promotions & Contests
-Created Program Advertisements using Adobe Photoshop
-Hired and Directed Other Members of the Broadcast Team
-Pre-Production for the Be Your Own Fan Webisodes, Nominated for the “Business of Sports” Award for Best Alternative Sports Business Content
-Helped Stadium Operations Clean the Park Before & After Games
And finally, just like most Minor League Baseball Employees,
-Pulled the tarp.

Shaw's Supermarkets

Customer Service Representative

As a CSR at Shaw's/Star Market, I got my first taste at managing. I ran the sales floor, found items for customers and solved their problems, plus I managed & tutored the cashiers & baggers.

Helping with cash register sweeps was a fairly regular occurrence, and I maintained a clean and organized store.

In one of the many fundraisers we held, I was in the store's top five for dollars raised, and our store as a whole was one of the highest in the entire chain.

Careerealism

Public Relations Intern

Working with CAREEREALISM was the first telecommuting position I had. The majority of my responsibility was promoting CAREEREALISM and its features through Twitter.

I also helped edit some of the articles posted on the site and attended weekly meetings to discuss marketing strategy.

The material that I read, spread and bled for the summer helped me craft my own personal brand. It showed just how powerful social media can be, and it was only the beginning of my success online.

Brewster Whitecaps, Cape Cod Baseball League

Play-by-Play Broadcaster and Broadcast Manager

For three seasons, I called Whitecaps games that streamed over the internet.
I wrote and produced the pre- and post-game shows, including interviews with players, managers, and other guests.
I was the Manager/Producer for the broadcasts and the team website, and I ran the team Blog, email and social media profiles as well.

I also hosted two episodes of Cape League Now in 2008. The first was a preview of the All-Star Game in Chatham, and the second was a playoff preview we recorded in Harwich. I encouraged broadcasters from other teams to break down the action, and we included player and manager interviews as well.

Career

WTBU

Broadcaster

I filled many roles at Boston University's sports radio leader. I was the Color Commentator for the NCAA Champion men's ice hockey team.

I had Play-by-Play experience in men's ice hockey, men's basketball, men's soccer, women's softball and women's soccer. I did extensive work in-studio for all of the sports, covering the pre-game, intermission, and post-game shows.

BUTV 10

Host, Panelist, and Producer

I had roles both on- and off-camera for two different shows on BUTV. I was a producer for Offsides, a sports magazine show, and I also regularly contributed to the debates on-screen. Additionally, I interviewed our experts on different leagues, including the NBA and the NHL.

I was an anchor, editor, and assistant producer for Terrier Nation, which is the BU athletics equivalent of ESPN's Sportscenter.

New England Hockey Journal

Writer

I reported on and wrote stories for publication in both the print and online editions of the journal. I learned a great lesson in putting away bias when I interviewed the NCAA Champion Boston College Eagles (BU's rival) for my first story.

Production Intern

I learned more about television in my internship at NESN than anywhere else. I had to do a laundry list of different tasks to make the content run smoothly. Whether it was managing the stage at an on-site pre-game show, helping the talent prepare through research, or writing reports on various subjects to educate the producers, I did it all.

ESPN Radio

Station Intern

I had a more important role at 890 ESPN than at any of my other radio or TV station internships. 890 relied on me for production and public relations help, and it gave me a great understanding of how mediums like it function. The relationship between sales and content was one I had not truly grasped until I worked there.

Career

WZLX Radio

Morning Show Intern

Working for Karlson & McKenzie was my first internship. It was a great segue from being a kid to being someone aware of the entertainment world's function and motives. I researched topics the talent wanted to talk about, wrote some material for the show, appeared on it a few times, and edited highlights for the website. I also catered to the guests the station had when they visited. Meeting Peter Gammons again was one of the best parts of working there.
