Born and raised in Erie, I graduated Seneca High School with high honors and Mercyhurst College with a degree in Communications/Journalism. Following my graduation in 2002, I was hired by the station as a part time videographer. Within a year, I was hired full time as a reporter/videographer, plus took over as weekend sports anchor.
I am blessed and fortunate to work with a such a great sports team. Not only have I covered major events such as the Super Bowl, Stanley Cup playoffs, and Major League Baseball, but more importantly, we spotlight our local high school and college programs. Having played numerous sports since I was 7, I know and understand the excitement and passion of rivalries and championship dreams. While I miss those wonderful moments competing, my journalism career allows me to share stories of the next generation of athletes and team accomplishments.
When it comes to my family, I am extremely close to them, including my extended family members. My parents have taught me so many valuable virtues I wouldn't know where to begin. They are absolutely the best! As for my two brothers and sister, they certainly know how to make me laugh and keep me humble in their own unique ways. Even though I don't see my aunts, uncles, and cousins nearly as much as I did growing up, I definitely cherish their time and company more than I ever did.
Finally, when I am working, I am fair and equal to every school. However, I too have teams of interest. Obviously I cheer for my beloved Bobcats and Lakers and I also love the Cleveland Indians, New England Patriots, and Detroit Red Wings. With that said, there is never a dull sports debate either in or outside the station walls.
