Edwin Valentin


Edwin graduated from California University of Pennsylvania with his Bachelors Degree in Sport Management. During his time at CalU, he was able to get his start in the sports industry by working for the Pittsburgh Steelers, the Pittsburgh Pirates, and the Pittsburgh Passion. He was also able to get his foot in the door with the Washington Wild Things, an independent professional baseball team, which is where he ended up full-time upon graduation. Within the three years he was with the Wild Things, Edwin went from Account Executive to Director of Ticket Sales by exceeding all of the organization’s expectations and reshaping the Ticketing Department. In his free time, Edwin loves listening to music, binging watching shows and movies, and just about every sport that’s on TV.
