I am a native of Oak Park, IL (home of Frank Lloyd Wright, Ernest Hemmingway, Edgar Rice Burroughs and other creative storytellers) and currently a senior at Michigan State University.
I am a broadcast journalism and history major at Michigan State and a lifelong hockey player, fan, and student of the game. My passion for broadcasting began at a young age “announcing” Chicago Blackhawks games from my seat at the United Center. I have been broadcasting, on TV and radio, since high school and have worked at Impact 89FM Sports radio and Big Ten Network Student U since 2013 at Michigan State.
I host, write and produce the podcast “Behind the Mask” for Impact Sports. The show is devoted to covering MSU’s varsity hockey team and was voted “Best On-Air Personality” by the Sports department in 2016. In addition, I can be found behind the mic broadcasting Spartan hockey, baseball, softball, volleyball and soccer on Big Ten Network Student U and online live tweeting for Impact Sports.
This past summer (2016) I completed a sports internship with ABC 7 (WLS-TV) in Chicago where I logging games for nightly sportscasts and assisted with player and coach interviews.
