I've been working in radio since 2002. I started engineering baseball games for News Radio 1290 WNBF and as I've learned more about the industry, I have completely fallen in love with it. Currently, I am a reporter and Assistant Brand Manager for News Radio 1290 WNBF and ESPN 1360 WYOS. I am an avid runner and a rabid hockey fan! I love to read, be outdoors, and travel to amusement parks and the ocean. I also love spending time with my niece and nephew and trying not to corrupt them too much.
