I am currently the Director of Media Relations and play-by-play radio voice of the Peoria Rivermen in the Southern Professional Hockey League. Prior to joining the Rivermen in September, 2013, I worked at the FOX SPEED Channel in Charlotte, North Carolina, as a television producer for the shows NASCAR Race Hub and SPEED Center.
On May 12, 2012, I graduated from Bradley University in Peoria, IL with a Bachelor of Science degree in sports communication. During my four years at Bradley, I spent a great deal of time gaining experience as a lead play-by-play voice, calling games for the men's basketball, baseball and soccer teams.
I have also served as a broadcast/media relations assistant for the Peoria Chiefs (Class A affiliate of the Chicago Cubs) and spent three seasons as a media intern for the then-AHL Peoria Rivermen (affiliate of the St. Louis Blues).a
Originally from Morton, IL, I have lived in the Midwest for the majority of my life. However, I spent my last semester of college in Los Angeles while interning at KABC-TV, the #1 local news station in America's #2 market.
In my spare time, I enjoy hanging out with my family and friends and eating at Judy's Restaurant in Morton. I have a strong passion for the Chicago Cubs, Chicago Bears and NASCAR, having attended races annually since my early childhood.
