My dad took me to Mile High Stadium to watch the Denver Broncos for the first time in 1981, when I was 5 years old. I grew up in Colorado and ever since I can remember, I’ve been an avid sports fan above anything else, and hopefully when you watch you see the enthusiasm I have. I love what I do and can’t imagine doing anything else.
My road into broadcasting is a little different than the one most people take. After graduating from Trinity University in San Antonio in 1998, I worked in finance and accounting in my hometown of Denver for 4 years. It wasn’t what I wanted to do and I didn’t want to have any regrets. So in 2002, I decided to quit my job, move across the country and go to graduate school in broadcasting. I graduated from Syracuse University in 2003 (shortly after Carmelo Anthony and Gerry McNamara brought the Orange the school’s first-ever basketball championship), and the TV road trip began shortly after.
I started out in Duluth, Minnesota, moved on to Green Bay, Wisconsin and got my first opportunity to work in Cincinnati TV back in 2007. I spent three years working across town at WXIX-TV and was very fortunate to land at Local 12 WKRC in September of 2010. Maybe the worst-kept secret in Cincinnati is how much I love it here. It’s a great place with great sports and great people. I’m lucky that Cincinnati has become home for me and my family.
As much as I really like storytelling and reporting, my favorite and most important job happens long before I walk in the door of the TV station. My two children crack me up constantly and I’m fortunate to be able to take care of them before I come into work in the afternoon. I’m married to Caroline and we make our home in Northern Kentucky.
