One of my favorite events of the year to work is Rogers Cup tennis. I helped manage Buick Canada’s sponsorship and my role in this activation has grown over the three years I’ve been involved. From taking photos for social media, to managing the iPad interactive elements and a #MyLuxuryIs twitter contest – Rogers Cup in Toronto and Montreal was a very busy 2 weeks for me.

I’m always trying to shoot the action from a sponsor’s perspective.

Canadian Vasek Pospisil had a memorable Rogers Cup. He found himself in a semi-final against fellow Canuck Milos Raonic.

The highlight on the Women’s side for me was watching unseeded Sorana Cîrstea fight her way to a final againt Serena Williams. It was cool to see lots of Romanian fans in the stands cheering on her upsets.
