For more than twenty years events of all sizes, as well as national series, have counted on me to help establish their brand, build continuity, and grow sponsor relationships, placing me in the top tier of Announcers/Emcees across the country. Taking time to fully understand and immerse myself into each event, from production to sponsorships, brings added value to the team. Race Directors depend on my handling of course talks/athlete meetings (including USAT rules), expo stages, and coordinating the start line and festivities. Marketing and Account Managers count on my understanding the value of sponsor activation and on site promotion. Whether it’s a triathlon, running event, national series, fundraiser, or charity event, I look forward to working with you.
