I come to Bismarck, ND, and KFYR-TV after living in the state of Michigan my entire life. This is my first stop in the world of broadcast media out of college.
Born and raised in a small town named Dearborn Heights, MI, right on the border of Detroit, MI, I attended Central Michigan University in Mount Pleasant, MI.
For my education at Central Michigan, I majored in Broadcast and Cinematic Arts, and minored in Sports Management and Journalism.
While gaining a fantastic education at a world-class University, I gained invaluable experience in the industry through many ways. I worked as the Sports Director for our local student radio stations WMHW-FM, a Play-by-Play Broadcaster for Central Michigan University Athletics, a Sports Anchor on various Moore Hall Television news and sports shows, as well as a Production Assistant for ESPN streams that ran though the Chippewa Sports Network.
In the industry away from Central Michigan University, I was the 2020 Voice of the Battle Creek Bombers (Northwoods League), the 2020 Voice of Morley-Stanwood Mohawk Football (Morley-Stanwood High School), a Play-by-Play Broadcaster for the Big Rapids Radio Network, among other roles with the station, I was a Production and Broadcast Assistant with the Great Lakes Loons (Single-A, Los Angeles Dodgers), a Broadcaster and Board Operator with ESPN 100.9-FM, as well as a Creative Content Creator for the Kalamazoo Growlers (Northwoods League).
When not covering your local sports, you can find me enjoying Detroit sports (Go Tigers, Lions, Red Wings, and Pistons!), as well as taking my dog Luna on random walks/adventures around North Dakota.
My fiancé, our dog, and our two cats could not be more ecstatic to be here! I’m incredibly excited to be welcomed to Bismarck and its surrounding communities!
