What do the first two hours of your day look like?
I take the subway into work every morning and use that time to try and get caught up on as many emails as I can. By the time I get to the office I start to work on my to do list. In the off-season I use that time to get ready for our official visits. Being in New York City, there is a lot of logistics that need to be accounted for.
Name one go-to resource that helps you with your duties.
Teamworks. It’s tremendous with scheduling and communication. Between the text message reminders and the file uploads to the app, everyone has the information they need right on their phone.
Name one new thing you want to accomplish this year?
Win the Ivy League!
As you look at the athletic operations field, what is one area that is growing/changing the most?
The amount of interest in the field. I try to go to either the Ops meetings at the AFCA convention or the DFO Spring Meetings and every year there are more people in attendance than the previous year.
First event, person, or job that sparked your interest in this field of work.
I interned with the University of Miami football program in college and had the chance to work under Tom Deahn their director of football operations at the time. Between him and Ryan McNamee (current Cornell director of football operations) I had two great resources to learn from every day.
