Talk about your affiliation with the club and how your fandom has grown over the years.
“I started working at Avaya three years ago. My main roles with the company is to be a liaison with Quakes and Avaya. I've been working with Anu the past two seasons and managing the activations for our suite in the stadium and fan engagement booth as well."
What has been your favorite part about Avaya's partnership with the Quakes?
"It's been a really fun experience. I wasn't a true soccer fan until I've worked here. I've been here every game the last two season. It's a great organization. Now I'm totally into the team and continue to keep track of how we're doing in the standings."
What was the experience for you and the company in 2015 when we opened the stadium?
"It was really exciting for Avaya. They wanted to have some sort of representation in Silicon Valley. It was a great way to showcase the Avaya technology and make an imprint in the community."
Who is your favorite Quakes player and why?
"It would have to be [Chris] Wondolowski. His whole resume of what he's done is so impressive and he's continuing to do it after all these years."
Where are you from and where do you currently reside?
"I was born and raised in San Jose. I've lived here all my life. I live in Campbell right now. My family lives in the area too and they're consistently coming to games."
