About Emmanuel 

I’ve had a number of experiences that can tell you “About me.” You can learn about some of them in my resume below. But you won’t find everything you need to know there.

You won’t read about how my experience in the dining halls at the University of Illinois taught me to be patient and to be attentive to detail. Or how my time as a cashier at Sports Authority, after receiving my bachelors, taught me humility and tested my perseverance.

These experiences were as important as any of the ones on my resume, because as a first-generation Chicagoan from the Southside, I was taught that you have to work to get to where you want to go. So, I worked to help pay my way through school, and I worked after graduation until I found myself honing my communications skills at two iconic Chicago institutions. Now, I bring everything I learned from these experiences to my current role with the Chicago Cubs.


Yet, I’m still not done. I plan to work myself into the role of head of communications for a major sports team. I hope to enjoy my journey to that position, learn as much as possible and mentor fellow communications professionals.
