BIOGRAPHY

I have been fortunate in my career, which began in a small media market in Lexington, North Carolina, that I have learned from so many pros. My hard work in markets like Lexington, Lima, and Grand Rapids, has allowed me to build a reputation as a journalist who can get the story and deliver it across any platform.

 

I’ve been a minor league baseball and NBA beat writer. I’ve also spent three years as a member of the Cleveland Browns’ coverage team for The Plain Dealer. I’ve won several state and national awards for my writing. I’m the author of the book “Rookie Season.” I’m also a filmmaker. I’ve produced and or directed three films, including being a co-producer of
ESPN’s “Believeland.”
