When I attended my first Sounders’ match in 2011 I immediately fell in love with the atmosphere that ECS created and I was 100% in. The lyrics “Our love for you only the gods can understand” spoke to me on a whole new level, because prior to 2010, I didn’t watch soccer, any soccer. At all. But after that first match, I joined ECS and started going to every home match, away viewing, ECS happy hour, and tifo event. In 2012, I left for a year to attend school in San Francisco, but you couldn’t keep me away from my Sounders. I connected with other Sounders supporters through the Bay Area Sounders Supporters group and together we worked together build that group into what is now the Bay Area/Northern California subgroup, Fog City Faithful.

Near or far, ECS is my home and the Sounders are my passion. As Director of Partnerships & Events, my goal is that everyone will get to know their neighbor (pogoing optional) at one of our Official Away Viewings or events. If supporting the Sounders is your passion, I want ECS to be your home. On match days you can find me in section 122 or 123, for away matches I’ll be drinking an ECS beer at an Official Away Viewing, or following my capo in enemy territory. All other times look for me at one of our partner bars planning our next ECS event or on the field playing ECS Pub League, Classic Division.
