I grew up outside Chicago but moved to Northern Indiana for my last two years of high school (go Wawasee Warriors!) then graduated from the University of Virginia in 1989 with a degree in Economics. My first job was as an investment banker in New York City but the lifestyle made me miserable and after a few years I decided I had to do what I loved = sports.
I was able to land a job working behind-the-scenes as a Production Assistant at ESPN in Bristol, Connecticut. After three years there, I got my first on-air TV job as the weekend sports anchor at the Fox affiliate in Albany, Georgia. Within six months, I was Sports Director. After a year doing that, I moved to the CBS affiliate in Augusta, Georgia... where YES I played Augusta National -- twice! In 1999, I followed my wife to her hometown of Louisville and got a job as a Sports Anchor/Reporter at WHAS11 television, where I worked with Garry Gupton and Brad Knoop.
In 2002 I transitioned to a job doing promotional work for WBKI-TV here in Louisville. Remember "The Buzz"? That was me. WBKI was one of the top WB affiliates in the country and is now a part of the CW network -- check it out!
When Tony Cruise left "SportsTalk 84" to take over the morning show, I jumped at the chance to pursue a lifetime dream: hosting my own radio show. I ventured back into sports and I've been on the air at 84WHAS since July 2004.
I love my job and realize just how lucky I am!
