I grew up in small-town suburbia outside Boston, so Boston sports runs through my veins. I have family friends that live in Germany, and they turned me on to Bayern München when I was 9. I became a Tottenham Hotspur and Paris-Saint-Germain supporter while watching the game, but die Roten is where my passion lies.

I graduated from Boston University in 2013 with a Bachelors in Broadcast Journalism.

I currently am the play-by-play voice for the USL soccer team Real Boston Rams, while also contributing to Next Impulse Sports (nextimpulsesports.com).

I am a writer and a broadcaster. I am a former track athlete, and I will watch almost any sport on TV (not curling). I am a World Baseball Classic apologist and an MLS Supporter.
