As a runner-turned-tennis enthusiast, Holabird Sports is an easy place to call home. Well, let's face it: I'm a far better runner than tennis player, but that doesn't stop me.
Marketing and outreach is my specialty here, and, just like my friend Charlie downstairs, I'm on the University of Maryland's "All Time Top-Ten List" for track and field. Though I ran both cross country and track for the Terps, I was a middle-distance specialist who focused on the mile and 800m. I would argue that Charlie's times are more impressive because I don't think shoes had been invented yet when he was in college.
I was a broadcast journalism major and love to write, produce video segments, and work with all forms of media. I used to host The Runaround on Baltimore's ESPN 1300--the only show in mainstream media dedicated entirely to running and endurance athletics. Holabird Sports helped make that show happen, and that's where my relationship with the company began!
The great thing about working here is that I can go for a run with my co-workers when the day is done. I used to race against Josh in college, but we can put our differences aside as colleagues.
My hobbies include all sports and music. I bleed purple for the Ravens and red for University of Maryland. I played piano for years and you may just find me jamming out with George when he sits down at his drum set. I home-brew beer with one of my good friends and former Terp teammates. We're getting better as we go along.
My goal is to make to the consumer experience at Holabird more engaging--both online and in-store!
