What do you currently do for the South Bend Cubs?
I help to plan and execute the logistics behind group outings and our business development program as an Account Executive. During the day that entails a lot of phone calls & emails. My gameday tasks include: greeting guests at the gates, mingling with my groups/season seat holders, working distribution tables, and other duties as assigned.
Why were you drawn to this organization? When I started as an intern in 2018, it was the opportunity to work with a well-run, well-renowned, and historic organization that drew me in. The great atmosphere and opportunity to provide incredible experiences for our fans is what keeps me around.
What do you do for fun outside of work? Among other things, I enjoy running, reading, and attending church services/events.
What are you most looking forward to this season? I'm most looking forward to our five Copa de la Diversión (The Fun Cup) games. There will be some new and exciting things happening within and beyond the stadium. From changing our on-field identity to Los Cabritos Maldichos (The Cursed Goats) to hosting some new community events, it's going to be an exciting summer! ¡Vamos Cabritos!
Favorite TV Show: I don't watch TV, but I enjoy superhero and war movies.

Favorite Food: Anything made by my girlfriend, Elle.
Favorite Sports Team (besides the South Bend Cubs): My parents and extended family are from Chicagoland, but I am a loyal fan of the Green Bay Packers
Is a Hot Dog a sandwich?: Per Merriam-Webster, a sandwich is "Two or more slices of bread or a split roll having a filling in between." So the answer is yes.
Favorite Athlete Growing Up: Brett Favre
If stranded on an island, what three objects/things do you want with you?: A machete, a lighter, and a year's supply of potable water.
Favorite Subject in School: It's a tie between history and Spanish. At CMU I took two history classes that were taught in Spanish, which was great.
