“I think the best stories always end up being about the people rather than the event, which is to say character-driven.”
I have dedicated my career to sharing the stories of others, and there is no better vehicle to tell emotional, entertaining, and thought provoking narratives than sports.
Currently, I am a Sports Anchor/Reporter for NBC5 (WPTZ) in Burlington, Vermont. When the sports world stopped in March of 2020 due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, on top of my nightly sportscasts, I created the series "Our Sports, Your Story." OSYS is a weekly feature series that highlights different athletes in Vermont, New York, and New Hampshire that have used sports to get through this difficult time, stand up for social injustice, or that will just bring a smile to your face.
Luckily, sports have returned. In these unprecedented times, I take a lot of pride in breaking news and telling the stories of Team USA in Lake Placid, the University of Vermont, Dartmouth College, top-level NCAA DIII athletics, and professional sports in Montreal, New England, and New York (and much, much more). My responsibilities go much further than reading highlights and attending Zoom press conferences: I shoot, edit, write, and produce my own work. Most importantly, I try to tell stories that will engage a wide range of viewers. This work has earned me four Emmy Nominations and two Edward R. Murrow Awards.
Prior to NBC5, I spent my days juggling a few different roles. Acting as a North American Sports Analyst for TRT World: Beyond the Game, an investigative sports show dealing with current topics from around the world, is one of my favorite assignments (a role I continue to do). The show is based out of Istanbul and is broadcasted on television in over 190 countries.
At home in the United States, I have worked as a sideline reporter all over the Northeast. I have gained experience reporting and working as a part of live productions for many different schools and networks including ESPN+ and the Great American Rivalry Series.
I spent the majority of 2018-2019 as a Sports Anchor/Reporter at the CBS affiliate in Odessa, Texas. While in football country, I was fortunate enough to cover the storied Friday Night Lights, Texas Tech’s electrifying runs to the Final Four and College World Series, the Dallas Cowboys, and much more! In 2018, the Texas Associated Press honored me as the “Best Sports Anchor,” in the Lone Star State. My responsibilities at CBS7 also included shooting, editing, producing, and writing, all of my own work.
Prior to my time in Texas, I had the privilege of working for NBC at the 2018 PyeongChang Winter Olympics. As a part of the “Daily Stories” department at NBC Olympics gave me the opportunity to help field produce and identify stories in real time ranging from Shaun White’s gold medal halfpipe run to a sit down feature with Mikaela Shiffrin.
Prior to my post-graduate career, I was an NCAA Baseball Player at NYU. Having been a high level athlete, I have a unique perspective on sports journalism. My experiences along with the relationships I have nurtured as a baseball player, help me every day as a reporter.
Besides being a student-athlete and President of the Alpha Chapter of the AEPi fraternity, I was determined to fulfill my dream of being a sports reporter. I worked as a play-by-play voice for NYU Basketball. Additionally, I held nine internships at, including but not limited to, MSG Networks, WABC-TV, and The Ivy League.
