I was born and raised in the Baltimore area by my parents who are avid Baltimore fans. I am a graduate of Messiah College where I studied journalism. I also studied at Temple University for a year as co-program with Messiah. I root for Baltimore teams, but I have a certain affection for New York area teams,excluding the Jets and Giants. I am also an avid soccer fan and watch games regularly. I root for AS Roma and AC Milan in Serie A, but will also watch Premier League ball and La Liga. In reality my true passion is baseball, but I also love soccer and lacrosse. I am also an avid WWE viewer. After falling off in 2010 after Shawn Michaels' retirement, I starting watching again in late 2011.
