Bay Area Ambassadors bring Michael Guzman on as Director of Media/Public Relations
Looking to Revamp their Image, Ambassadors look for local talent to get the job done.
In 2006, Guzman returned to his Alma Mater, San Lorenzo High School to become the Varsity boys soccer coach and was instrumental in their return to the North Coast Section playoffs. The team appeared in the NCS playoffs in two of the three seasons under Guzman’s leadership.
Guzman’s work with the Ambassadors started in 2010 as a volunteer photographer and writer for the club. As an avid supporter of the sport, his eye for the action and instinct for the game was showcased in his photography.
While at Cal State East Bay, Guzman has been involved with the campus online news channel, “Pioneer Web Tv” as a reporter, director and producer. Seeking to push the envelope, Guzman partnered with another student as co-producer and on-air talent in the pilot of Mente Latina, a spin-off show to be broadcast in Spanish alongside Pioneer Web Tv. Mente Latina is now in its third quarter and has grown from the original two students to more than ten.
Cal State East Bay has been a pivotal launching pad for Guzman where he has also honed his skills as a writer. Following a similar track as the all Spanish Mente Latina, Cal State East Bay’s campus newspaper, “The Pioneer” has launched its first ever version of the paper in Spanish which is run every other edition. Guzman is the Bilingual Sports Editor for the Spanish edition, and also contributes to the weekly edition of the paper.
In 2010 Cal State East Bay became the home for Women’s Professional Soccer team, FC Gold Pride. Guzman joined the staff as an Inside Sales representative in hopes of working his way up into a media related position. However in 2011 the team announced that it was no longer going to remain in operation and shut its doors after one season at East Bay.
Guzman has ambitions to coach soccer at the collegiate level and wants to pursue a career path in professional sports where he can incorporate his love of writing, photography and video production. The Ambassadors are proud to have Mr. Guzman on board.
