I found my way into journalism while being the Sports Editor for my high school's newspaper, The Sabre, at St. John's College High School in Washington D.C. From there I went on to major in Television Broadcast Journalism and minor in History at West Virginia University in Morgantown, Wv. I started off working for WWVU-FMU92 in their sports department in my first semester at WVU in 2010. During my senior year I was promoted to Men's Basketball Producer.

I interned with WRC-4 (NBC Washington) in their sports department during the summer of 2012 working for Dan Hellie (now with the NFL Network). The following summer I interned with WTTG (Fox 5 DC) in their sports department interning for Dave Ross, Lindsay Murphy and Scott Smith. I interned with Blue And Gold News in Morgantown covering WVU Football and WVU Women's Soccer during the Fall of 2013.

Currently, I am working as an Economic Development Reporter for WVU News during the spring 2014 semester. I am scheduled to graduate in May of 2014 and look forward to becoming a professional reporter at a television network somewhere around the United States or Canada!

I have many personal experiences in athletics. I played ice hockey at many different levels for 11 years before calling it quits due to a spinal injury and to focus on my education at West Virginia University. I have also dabbled in soccer, lacrosse, and baseball (as a student manager).

When I'm not working, I spend almost all of my free time watching sports, tweeting about sports, and writing feature posts on my website.
