About Me

I am a play-by-play broadcaster with experience in football, basketball, and baseball. My passion is play-by-play, but my skillset extends beyond the broadcast booth. During my time in the sports industry, I have hosted or co-hosted hundreds of podcast episodes and live sports talk shows. Writing has also been a focal point for me in and out of sports. Being in sports has given me the opportunity to interview so many talented and interesting people, including local high school athletes, college coaches, and even a Pro Football Hall of Famer and Emmy-winning actors!
