Devin Healey
Artist | Hobbyist | Photography
United States
I’m Devin “Coug” Healey. A graduate of Rutgers University, Director of Digital Marketing, professional dodgeballer, and a passionate member of Red Sox Nation. Simply put, I’m a 20-something New Jerseyan who dabbles in sports, movies, TV, music, food, videogames, social media, the mundane & the absurd.

Although I graduated from Rutgers with a Bachelor’s in Planning & Public Policy, I now realize that I should have taken some time to evaluate what I really wanted to do with the rest of my life, instead of choosing my career from my playing SimCity.

Over the past few years I’ve cultivated a serious love affair with Web 2.0 and social media, and although I have zero formal background in communications, marketing, or advertising I am currently taking a hiatus from graduate school to pursue a career in social media. Community management is my passion. I love the relationship between users and brands, and how a well oiled social media machine can form life long fans and customers. Currently I’m working as the Director of Digital Marketing & Auction Operations for an auction house and the Social Media & Technical Director for their sister company, while also consulting for my former company, a rare coin certification company. Saving the world one tweet at a time.
Interests
Me and my friends Kyle and Travis went to the U.S. Open yesterday and it was pretty sweet. I went with my friend Travis last year and we were able to see Dmitry Tursunov play Xavier Malisse from the front row at Louis Armstrong Stadium, so when looking at the schedule we saw that Tursunov was playing again, we had to go. This time he was playing 31 seed Fabrice Santoro of France on Court 7. We got there pretty early and were able to get front row seats again. Unfortunately, Tursunov lost, but while there we saw recently retired Todd Martin in the stands. He lost to Santoro last round so I guess he decided to check out his next match. I also saw the French coach of the latest Federer victim, Marcos Baghdatis of Cyprus, watching the match from the other side of the court. If you weren't able to see the Federer - Baghdatis match, you should find it and watch it, because it was awesome. I predict that with the right coach, Baghdatis will be able to strengthen his stamina to contend with the top seeds.

After that, we sat through a women's match on the Grandstand in order to get good seats for the Henman - Golmard match. 20th seed Chandra Rubin dispensed the unranked Italian Antonella Serra-Zanetti in straight sets.

Then we scrambled to the other side of the Grandstand in order to get seats in the shade for the match between number 5 seed "Tiger" Tim Henman of Britain and Jerome Golmard of France. Aside from the time several years ago when I was able to see Sampras play Rusedski, Henman is the highest seed I've seen play outside of Arthur Ashe. Also, I like Henman's overall attitude towards the game, so it was nice to see him play live. Henman took down Golmard in 4 sets in what shaped up to be a pretty good match.

Finally, at about 6:00 the stadium emptied so that everyone could go see Carlos Moya play in Arthur Ashe, enabling us to get in the front row of the non-box seats. It was 21 seed Taylor Dent of the U.S. against the Frenchman Paul-Henri Mathieu. Personally I like the way Dent plays, as after Sampras left the game, theres been a lack of serve-and-volley style players. Unfortunately, Dent lacks the experience to piece together his skills to form a dangerous game. He has the power and the skill, but his mental game is lacking. It was a fantastic match that went 4 sets and 2 tiebreakers, but Dent just couldn't defeat Mathieu. A testament to how much he needs to work on his mental game is the fact that he continued to argue with the chair about a point after he won the game in question, eventually resulting in a point penalty. After the game he cursed out the chair again, leaving the stadium without shaking his hand. Until Dent proves that he can actual win a Grand Slam, he should try not to burn his bridges.

Either way it was a sweet 3 1/2 hour match. Patrick McEnroe was sitting in the box seat directly in front of me taking notes on Dent, and I saw Andy Roddick's coach Brad Gilbert sitting across the court from us. I'm also pretty sure I saw Bud Collins.

So, unless you actually watch tennis, this entry is probably very confusing to you, but thats ok.

And to top it off, when I got home from the Open, my iPod was there! It only took Apple two days to process and ship it via FedEx, so way to go on that one. I'm outtie five thousand, or whatever the kids say.
