I grew up in Maryland (native to Montgomery County), and I’m thrilled to be back in the area covering sports for WDVM 25.

Before joining the team at WDVM, I was a sports anchor and reporter for WHSV in Harrisonburg, VA. Similar to what I’m doing here, I covered dozens of high schools in the area and produced a weekly student athlete of the week and game of the week series in the fall. One of the most rewarding stories I did for the Shenandoah Valley was helping a young boy with a terminal illness meet his hero, John Cena.

I’m a proud graduate of the University of Maryland’s Philip Merrill College of Journalism, where I was elected commencement speaker by my graduating class, and was honored to receive the star student award from the Shirley Povich Center for Sports Journalism. While in College Park, I covered every sports team at the university, broadcasting games for the Big Ten Network and WMUC Sports. I was ranked twice as a Top 20 Collegiate Sportscaster of the Year by the Sportscasters Talent Agency of America.

I also anchored and reported for Capital News Service for two years and pioneered The Left Bench TV, a student-run sports broadcast outlet that still exists today. Then I interned with NBC 4 and ABC 7 in Washington for their sports department, before coming on as a field producer for NBC 4 during one season to cover the Washington Football Team.

In my spare time, I love watching TV shows like Curb Your Enthusiasm, Jeopardy, or The Amazing Race—hopefully one day I’ll be on all three! Otherwise, you’ll find me playing tennis or singing karaoke.
