Role: Senior Program Manager & Business Lead, NFL Web & Apps
Office: Los Angeles, USA
Year joined: 2018
Deltatre in three words: Exciting, challenging, worldly
I was born and raised in California and as I started going to school, I realised that I was always really interested in maths and science. When I was getting ready to go to university, I knew I wanted to go out of the state of California because I had been there my whole life, and I also knew that I wanted to study engineering.
I went to university in Dallas, Texas, and I got my Bachelor of Science in Engineering Management Information Systems. I was also able to study in Spain for six months so I got a really worldly experience, and then I went on to pursue my master's in engineering there as well.
The first thing I do is connect with my teams in Turin, Italy, because I'm trying to catch them before the end of their day. Otherwise, I'll come into the office and meet with my team in LA and give them any updates. Then client meetings start, so I’ll either be presenting status reports to the NFL, or I’ll have meetings with my leadership.
I’ve been interested in or played sports my entire life. I played basketball and softball and track during my senior year of high school, and every Monday I still manage a coed slowpitch softball team. I also volunteer for a domestic violence charity and a children’s shelter.
It’s my dream job.
It's been the perfect intersection of sports, business, entertainment, and technology that I had been looking for throughout my career.
We have direct access to our leadership and we're defining the culture. This company has been around for 30 plus years, but within it you kind of have this start-up feel. We have a lot of visibility and exposure to changes.
There’s just this family feel and you get a sense that everyone is really passionate about the work they do and they really care about the people they work with. I also have great mentors.
Don't be afraid to ask for help because this is an organisation that has your back.
