Currently, I am a freelance sports broadcaster and production assistant for Turner Sports (TBS) in Atlanta.

My most recent on-air work was a freelance job as a studio host and analyst for TBS Hot Corner, a live, interactive Internet show that aired during each game of the inaugural season of Major League Baseball postseason coverage on TBS in 2007. The website,, was run by Turner Sports and affiliated with MLB’s website. The show consisted of a 90-minute pre-game show and was live throughout all games aired on TBS, ranging from one game a day to three. The website was an interactive complement to the TV game broadcasts, with studio cam, dugout and pitcher cams live from the game, and a game tracker cam arranged in a four-square mosaic that could be viewed simultaneously or individually with a full screen. My duties on the show included hosting with two female co-hosts, game analysis, interviewing baseball guests via phone and in-studio, reading highlights, answering instant messages on-air, and emceeing a female baseball clothing line fashion show.

For the past three baseball seasons, I have been a play-by-play broadcaster and media relations director for three different minor league baseball teams.

I was the play-by-play broadcaster and media relations director for the Kannapolis Intimidators in 2007. Kannapolis is a single-A affiliate of the Chicago White Sox in the South Atlantic League and is located just outside of Charlotte, NC. In 2006, I filled the same role for the Wilson Tobs (NC), a collegiate summer league team in the Coastal Plain League. In 2005, I served in that position for the Auburn Doubledays, a single-A affiliate of the Toronto Blue Jays located in Auburn, NY.

I am a 2005 graduate from the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University. I majored in broadcast journalism and had a minor in coaching.
