A news reporter and editor since graduation, on the side he dabbled with blogging, starting up Zombie Nation in 2007, and eventually bringing together some of the best Penn State bloggers to create Linebacker-U.com in 2010. He spent three seasons as a fully-credentialed sideline photographer, and managing editor of Black Shoe Diaries through the end of the 2012 football season.

In 2013, he was editor in chief of We Are! 2013, the first fully-digital Penn State football preview magazine. We Are! 2014 is currently underway.
