Each Monday, we will introduce an AWSM member as part of our “Member Mondays” initiative. Get to know some of your AWSM colleagues!
When did you join AWSM? 1999, I think. My first conference was in 2000.
How AWSM has helped you? I went to college with a former AWSM intern, who introduced me to the group and the world of sports media in general when I was looking for a career change. The rest, as they say, is history.
