Bio

I'm the global Head of Sports at Instagram. I oversee strategic partnerships across the sports ecosystem, including athletes, leagues, teams, and media. Before joining Instagram in fall 2018, I was Complex Networks' first Chief of Staff reporting to CEO Rich Antoniello. Prior to Complex, I led Partnerships & Operations at media startup Whistle Sports, an emerging sports media brand, data/analytics consultancy, and content network.  I spent the first 6 years of his career at Google in the Bay Area, the first 4 working in its sales practice before transitioning to YouTube to manage new partnerships focused on the sports vertical.

I'm originally from the D.C. Metro Area, and a lifelong fan of its local teams (Orioles over Nationals). I graduated from the University of Notre Dame and bleed blue and gold. In my free time I'm a passionate sports fan and am grateful I can turn a game on and convince myself that I'm 'doing work.'
