The story of T.E.A.M. (Tomorrow's Entertainment and Athletics Marketers):


"My goal was to show at-risk and inner-city high school students that they have choices in life..."


As a creative, passionate sports and entertainment marketing exec and founder of LONGBOARD Marketing, I have always enjoyed being able to create dynamic efforts for brands including ESPN, Fox, NFL, and more.  The ability to combine my passion with my career has allowed me to develop some amazing initiatives that make my occupation anything but a job.  I quickly realized as a motivational speaker working with college students at such colleges as USC, Pepperdine, Chico State, etc. that presenting unique and traditional marketing principles in exciting case studies featuring Drew Brees, Nick Lachey, and Evander Holyfield resonated with the students.  And if helping students already enrolled in college whom already have their goals in place was successful, I realized that taking my efforts to the next level and helping motivate students beyond the classroom was a logical choice...

I started T.E.A.M. (Tomorrow’s Entertainment & Athletics Marketers) in 2009.  My goal was to show at-risk and inner-city high school students that they have choices in life, can attain success through hard work and commitment, and can even choose their passion as a career.   An integral part of the program is keeping kids off the streets and away from negative influences via TEAM’s innovative after school program.  The weekly program which is held at Thomas Jefferson High School in Central Los Angeles is a free program offered to inner city youth.  T.E.A.M. members learn about marketing principles, engage in Sports and Entertainment properties, learn from industry guest speakers, and actively participate in creating marketing campaigns for the sports teams and celebrities they identify with and admire.   T.E.A.M. is designed to provide these students with an interactive, hands-on alternative that will help motivate and educate them and ideally provide them with a skillset to help them succeed in life.
