Q: What is your favorite BlueClaws memory?

A: The epic 2015 17th Inning game that ended in a 2-2 tie game due to fog.

Q: What is your favorite BlueClaws promo night and why?

A: Harry Potter Night. There are so many elements that go into that night that make it fun for the fans, and the opposite where the fans that dress up and make it fun for everyone else!

Q: What is your favorite part of the job?

A: I'm passionate about Minor League Baseball and the BlueClaws because it's all about the fun and not necessarily the game on the field. I love the game, but having a Mini Golf Course in the ballpark and a Pork Roll, Egg and Cheese Race in the 4th Inning are such crazy ideas that they work in the MiLB!

Q; What is your favorite Jersey Shore landmark?

A: Jenkinson's Boardwalk. That was my first beach and boardwalk experience when I arrived from Texas.

Q; What is your favorite Jersey Shore activity?

A: Mini Golf! There are so many great Mini Golf locations in the Jersey Shore area, you have to play every single one.

Q: What is your favorite Jersey Shore restaurant and meal?

A: I think it has to be Burger 25. Best local burger in my opinion and their monthly shakes are so good. Hard to keep me away from that place.

Q: If you hadn't gone into the sports/entertainment industry, what would you be doing?

A: I've been pretty locked into working in sports for a while so this is a really tough question for me. I guess it would be marketing or sponsorship in a different space.

Q: What is your favorite thing to do away from the ballpark?

A: Play with my dog on the beach in Lavallette!

Q: How long have you lived at the Shore and what brought you here?

A: Five years total (2014-2015 and 2018-2020). After finishing my degree at LSU, I was looking into working in Minor League Baseball and the BlueClaws happened to pop up. Never thought I would end up in New Jersey or the Shore, but I'm glad I did!
