Jared joined the ALSD in 2009, and continues to build the news flow for the sports and entertainment venue marketplace. Jared serves as the Publisher for SEAT Magazine. Through his editorial leadership and creative vision, SEAT has grown from a 40-page, saddle-stitched newsletter into a 144-page-and-growing, perfect-bound quarterly trade publication. While not covering sports and entertainment, Jared is an avid reader of classic literature and a creative fiction writer. He holds a Master’s degree from Xavier University and a Bachelor of Civil Engineering degree from the University of Dayton, where he also played football, earning three Varsity letters and the Emil Karas Memorial Award for most inspirational leadership. And despite what Amanda Verhoff says, he is not a ginger, but a strawberry blonde.
