Welcome to my website! 

I seek to deliver the stories behind the story. Whether its providing insights from the sideline, in-depth game analysis, or uncovering an athlete’s personality, my goal is to provide the audience with more than what they see on the field. 

I currently work as a Sports Anchor at WSIL News 3 in Carbondale covering SIU, Missouri Valley, and Ohio Valley Conferences.

In addition to anchoring, I've also done sideline reporting for SIU basketball, softball, and football games for ESPN televised production. 

 

I earned a Master's degree in Broadcast & Digital Journalism, Sports Communication Emphasis, from the Newhouse School of Communication at Syracuse University, and a B.S. in Information Communication Technology from Florida State University.

 

When not covering sports, you’ll find me playing in local volleyball or soccer leagues, traveling, hitting the beach, and spending time with family and friends.
