Multimedia Sports Journalist
I get paid to talk about my hometown sports teams on television. It almost sounds silly when I type that sentence, but I am truly living a dream come true.
Since June 2015 I have been the co-host of "Sports Feed" on CLTV in Chicago with former NFL running back Jarrett Payton. Along with hosting this nightly hour-long sports show, I fill-in anchor and report for WGN-TV, enterprising feature stories and hosting select 30-minute pregame shows for Bulls, Blackhawks and White Sox games.
My journey started in the Chicago suburbs when I began calling football games as a 14-year-old freshman for my high school radio station WAES-FM. Those formative years of working in radio and writing for my school's newspaper incited a passion for journalism that led me to the renowned University of Missouri School of Journalism.
It was at Mizzou where my television career took off. I first honed my skills as sports director of the student-run station MUTV before working at Mid-Missouri's NBC affiliate, KOMU-TV. From reporting and anchoring, to working the web desk and operating the live truck, I held almost every job in the newsroom at KOMU. That experience as a multimedia journalist led me to Memphis, Tenn., where I worked as a sports reporter, producer and anchor for the NBC affiliate WMC-TV. After a wonderful year in Memphis, I moved two-and-a-half hours north to Cape Girardeau, Mo., where I took over as weekend sports anchor and reporter for CBS station KFVS-TV and began hosting a sports talk radio show on SEMO ESPN Radio on Saturday mornings.
After more than two years in southeast Missouri, my path led me back home to Chicago where I started out as a sports producer for WGN-TV before transitioning back in front of the camera with the creation of "Sports Feed" in 2015.
I've featured some of my favorite work from my various career stops here on my website. I hope you enjoy watching these pieces as much as I've enjoyed meeting the athletes, coaches and fans who make my job so rewarding.
