I had the opportunity to work with the fan experience and special events department of the Cleveland Browns to assist with event pre-planning, event set-up, tear down, and coordination of event activations for all 2019 special events. Our 12-person team was in charge of the set-up, daily operation, and tear down of all elements that relate to the 2019 Cleveland Browns Training Camp and preseason game day. We also assisted fans and guests at each events by providing knowledgeable information and helpful assistance to make sure that they had the best experience possible.
