Born in Germany because Dad was in the Army. I have three degrees in the Communications discipline. I've worked in TV news for almost 16 years. Nine of those at a major national cable outlet. I'm a long time sports fan who grew up on Long Island supporting the Giants, Mets, and Islanders. I'm a huge hockey fan, partly due to my first exposure to the great game with the 1980 Miracle Team USA squad that shocked the world. Fantasy sports is a part of my life. Fantasy football is my strongest sport, but I still enjoy hockey and baseball. Truth be told I loathe basketball. My passion is hockey and can go on forever about many different issues in that sport.
