ESPN

Since 2006 I’ve been with ESPN (first in Bristol, Connecticut, now in Los Angeles) working on various shows, productions and projects.

As a Graphics System Controller and Developer (October 2006 – February 2011) I had experience building and playing-out graphics on national productions such as SportsCenter, Baseball Tonight, and NFL Live.  I also worked on Spanish language international productions, focused on training and mentoring new employees, managing reference guides, problem solving, report writing and day-to-day graphical operations. Some highlights include expertise with various graphical interfaces, data management, crew communication and quality assurance.  I also became the chairman of the ESPN Young Professionals employee resource group’s graphics committee and was founder and co-leader of Graphics Department’s ‘Off The Record’ group.

Since early 2011 as a Lead Controller in the Motion Graphics department I’ve developed technical expertise and leadership skills while working on high profile productions both in studio and in remote TV environments on the road. I’ve volunteered to take on extra projects and responsibilities, some highlights include being ESPN College GameDay (Fall ’11, ’12), lead on-air graphics operator on NBA Finals on ABC (June ’12), acting as transitional technical support for ESPN College Basketball GameDay, coordinating teambuilding events, training programs and being the lead on Bracketology graphics. I’ve also been involved in creating custom graphics with Photoshop, some examples are shown below.
