About

Hi everyone, and thanks for taking a look at my personal website!

Currently, and I am working as the voice of Kent State Athletics, serving as the radio play-by-play broadcaster for all Kent State Women's basketball games.

I also broadcast all home games for all fall and spring sports for the Golden Flashes, and sideline report for Kent State Football.

This past May, I received a bachelors of science from Ithaca College in Television and Digital Media Production with minors in Journalism and Sport Studies.

I currently serve as a Military Intelligence officer in the New York Army National Guard in Headquarters Troop, 2-101 Calvary Regiment. In May of 2023, I commissioned as a 2nd lieutenant in the U.S Army after going through four years of training with Cornell Army ROTC's Excelsior Battalion. I have graduated both Airborne School and Army Advanced Camp. I feel that my balance of leadership and discipline in the military translate well to the broadcasting world.

This past February, myself and three of my peers represented Ithaca College at Super Bowl LVII's radio row in Phoenix, Arizona. We conducted an hourly show each day interviewing players, coaches, and media personalities the week of the game that aired on our school's flagship station, 92 WICB. We also had the chance to attend and chat with coaches and players during media availability leading up to the big game.

In the fall of 2022, I was the radio play-by-play broadcaster for Ithaca College Football on WICB 91.7 fm. In November of 2022, I got the opportunity to call the 63rd Cortaca Jug game at Yankee Stadium. Ithaca Football had a 12-1 campaign and made it all the way to the NCAA quarterfinals.

During my time at Ithaca College I was been involved with a variety of sport media outlets. In the summer of 2022, I was a sports intern at CNY Central in Syracuse. There I got the chance to enhance my on-air, writing and editing skills.

I received extensive experience in play-by-play broadcasting the past few years. During my time at Ithaca, I was the voice of Cornell Volleyball on ESPN Plus during the fall of 2021. The previous two winters, I was the primary voice for Ithaca College Men's Basketball on ICTV.

In March of 2022, I had the chance to work for CBS Sports at the NCAA Men's Basketball Final Four in New Orleans, Louisiana. I am looking forward to continuing to work for CBS again this Fall.

In my free time I enjoy spending time with my dog, hanging out with friends, and partaking in some form of exercise.

I am open to play-by-play opportunities and I am looking forward to continuing my career in 2024. Feel free to contact me on the page below!
