I graduated from the University of Florida in December of 2008 with a degree in Telecommunications and dreams of being on TV. I also graduated into one of the worst job markets our fair nation has ever seen. Nonetheless I have found a means of employment by working as the Director of Media Relations and Marketing for the Ellenton Ice and Sports Complex in the Tampa Bay area of Florida. I recently became an author on Alligator Army to help me get back into the expertise that I most love to do: Cover Gator sports. I'm looking forward to contributing tons of details, news, and analysis about Gator sports that hopefully you'll read and enjoy. Any feedback, hit up my email.

"I was so mentally blocked that I couldn't understand what I was doing wrong and how it was hurting my team, and coaches had to sit me down and break that down for me, and I understood from that point on forward."
