Growing up my dream was to wear the pinstripes and celebrate winning the World Series. I did that in 2009 but I was in my living room in the same jersey I bought my freshman year of high school. It also wasn't with the Yankees. Ok, so that dream never really panned out.
Regardless, I love sports and couldn't imagine a better place to be than bringing Siouxland the best in prep, college and pro coverage! There is no script to sports and just when you think you know what's going to happen (in the words of John Madden) "BOOM!" You're mind gets blown and your left wondering," did that really just happen?"
Growing up in a military family, I lived in eight states and in Japan for eight years. Moving and living in different places, and experiencing new cultures allowed me gain a better understanding of sports and the stories that drive the business.
After graduating from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, I spent the next few months selling shoes for New Balance, before landing my first job as the Weekend Sports Anchor at KNOP-TV in North Platte, Nebraska.
I love the Yankees, Nets and Broncos. Yes, I bleed Husker red.
