What’s a day in the life like in your role at iHeartMediaTech? 
A day in my life as a Project Analyst involves lots of coordinating, data and reports. I help with anything from UAT testing on a project to forecasting budgets, helping with time tracking and everything in between. Fitting about 2 cups of coffee in is key.

What is your favorite iHeartMedia product/event? 
It’s difficult to pick just one event as a favorite, but I would really like to check out the iHeart Fiesta Latina event. The lineup was amazing this year.

​​​​​​Why did you choose iHeartMediaTech? 
I chose iHeartMedia Tech because I was excited for the opportunity to dive deeper into the IT world. I was previously a Web Project Manager and it really sparked my passion to learn more about wants and needs that people have with using software and filling those gaps to make their lives easier.

If you could switch places for a day and be any iHeart On Air DJ or iHeart talent, who would it be and why?
I would probably want to switch with Raven on 96.1. Maybe we wouldn’t even have to switch, and I could just join her! I love the music they play on the station and I would love to chat with her about some of my favorite artists!

What’s a day in the life like in your role at iHeartMediaTech?
Let me grab my fireman’s hat. Actually, I spend my days talking to internal customers to understand the problems they are trying to solve with data. I take this information back to my team to develop solutions to solve these problems.

What is your favorite iHeartMedia product?
I enjoy the Ted Radio hour and fiction Podcasts during my commute.

Why did you choose iHeartMediaTech?
I have been here since 2004 when the company went by a different name. iHeartMedia Tech has changed significantly since that time. I will say I that stay at iHeartMedia Tech because there are always new opportunities to apply my talents while continuing to work with great people.

If you could switch places for a day and be any iHeart On Air DJ or iHeart talent, who would it be and why?
I would switch with Ryan Seacrest. I love to meet some of the very talented artists.

What’s a day in the life like in your role at iHeartMediaTech?
First things first, a cup of coffee while I review my schedule and plan out my day. Usually I have scrums depending on the projects I’m working on, and meetings to discuss a broad range of topics. I work as a co-lead our Technology Council, and also work on projects playing Solution Architect. Any given day ranges from preparing management briefs, researching and experimenting with new software, writing code, designing mechanisms for a product under development, reviewing code for a project team, to mentoring and consulting.

What is your favorite iHeartMedia product?
I really like the iHeartRadio mobile app and am a regular listener of the Kidd Kraddick Show.

Why did you choose iHeartMediaTech?
Much of my career has been spent working on solutions in the Finance industry, though I have also worked in the Pharmaceutical and Software industries. I wanted to try out a new business domain and a different corporate culture.

If you could switch places for a day and be any iHeart On Air DJ or iHeart talent, who would it be and why?
I don’t think I’d want to switch places with any talent, but it would be a lot of fun to join in on one of the talk shows!
