Hello, Siouxland!

Local sports has always been a passion of mine and I am excited to cover all that this area has to offer.

I was born in Riverside, California, but I have spent most of my life in York, Pennsylvania. I grew up there and I stayed in the Keystone state to attend Penn State University. I am a Nittany Lion at heart and it is great that I get to continue my career in Big Ten country here in Iowa.

I graduated from Penn State and the Schreyer Honors College in May 2014 with a Bachelor of Arts in Journalism with a minor in Theatre. I thoroughly enjoyed the Penn State experience, spending most of my time in the television studios of the Centre County Report and the radio labs of ComRadio. During my time in Happy Valley, I worked as the Sports and News anchor at the Centre County Report, Sports Director of ComRadio, and Sports anchor for our sports feature show "In The Game." I also had the opportunity to do play-by-play broadcasting of Penn State and local high school sports for the Big Ten Network, C-NET and the NFHS Network. In addition to my broadcasting experiences, I was a member of the Presidential Leadership Academy and the Alpha Gamma Rho fraternity.

When I wasn't hitting the books, prepping for games and tailgating at Penn State football games, I was interning at various places in the Northeast. I spent two summers in New York City working for Westwood One and CBS Sports and I spent one summer working for FOX 43 Sports (WPMT) in York, PA. I also worked as a contributor for the National Football Foundation and Sports Radio 1350 WOYK.

I am new to Siouxland, but I am ready to make this place my home. If you have any story ideas, questions, or would just like to chat, feel free to email or tweet at me.
