Q: What is your favorite BlueClaws memory?
A: I could go on forever with this question. There are so many to choose from! I would have to say one of my most unique BlueClaws memories happened away from FirstEnergy Park. It was after we won the SAL Championship in 2010 and we had our entire staff at a Phillies game at CBP. About 2 minutes before we walked down on the field our General Manager at the time, Geoff Brown, handed me our SAL Trophy and told me I was going to ride off the field with the Phanatic holding the trophy. It was such an amazing experience to have all of those fans cheering as the Phanatic hit at least 50mph on his quad as we went around the field. I am just happy I didn't drop the trophy or fall of the back. It is something I will never forget.
Q: What is your favorite BlueClaws promo night and why?
A: We have had so many awesome and fun promo nights throughout the years, but I will have to go with CATURDAY! It was such a blast to collaborate with the team and just be completely silly about an idea and run with it. It was great to get national recognition on the jerseys and the concept. I am hoping we can bring this one back soon! Meow!
Q: What is your favorite part of the job?
A: The variety that this job brings has always kept it fun and fast paced. No two days ever seem to play out the same so it keeps everything fresh. Also, the great people I get to share this career with. I have met so many influential people and lifelong friends from my time here.
Q; What is your favorite Jersey Shore landmark?
A: Outside of FirstEnergy Park I would say The Stone Pony. I have been able to see some great concerts there throughout the years as well as host a yearly charity event there for the Monmouth Regional Chamber of Commerce, Caring With Karaoke. It is a classic concert venue with an awesome group of people to work with.
Q; What is your favorite Jersey Shore activity?
A: I am not sure this is considered a "shore activity" but I always like to try and check out the various breweries in the area and taste some new beers with friends. We have some great breweries that are just a short drive no matter where you are at the shore.
Q: What is your favorite Jersey Shore restaurant and meal?
A: This is harder than I thought as there are so many great locations. I would have to say Anchor Tavern in Belmar as that is my hometown spot but I am also a huge fan of the Asbury Biergarten. Their German inspired dishes paired with a Weihenstephaner, can't go wrong.
Q: If you hadn't gone into the sports/entertainment industry, what would you be doing?
A: I don't really have an answer to this question. I think this industry is where I am meant to be. This wasn't a real thing back when I broke into this industry but maybe I would have gone influencer and be a video game streamer or something out of the ordinary.
Q: What is your favorite thing to do away from the ballpark?
A: Time away from the ballpark? I don't understand this question... In the limited time that we usually get in a normal year it is always great to be able to see my family and friends outside of this crazy world of Minor League Baseball.
Q: How long have you lived at the Shore and what brought you here?
A: I have lived at the Shore since January of 2009 which is when I accepted a food and beverage internship with the BlueClaws. I never would have imagined I would still be here over a decade later. Looking forward to what the BlueClaws will accomplish over the next decade!
