I'm a proud citizen born and raised in Kalamazoo. I have ties all over the city growing up on both the north and south sides of town, but spending chunks of time on the east and west sides of town with friends and family. I attended Greenwood and Milwood for Elementary, Milwood Magnet, moving on to Loy Norrix before making my way to Adrian College. I graduated from Adrian College with a Bachelor of Arts in Communication with a minor in Journalism. I spent some time working for Adrian College Television. I also spent 2 years writing sports and opinion pieces for "The College World", Adrian College's School Newspaper. Growing up I fell in love with sports very quickly. I loved pretty much all sports, I even found myself watching and following soccer and baseball. This led to a career where I am now, the media. I love being able to entertain and inform the people, but I probably love lacrosse the most. I played football, basketball, lacrosse, and ran track while growing up and went on to play lacrosse at Adrian College for 4 years. I am a podcaster that covers professional lacrosse, I like to play video games, and I spend lots of time on YouTube, Twitch, Hulu, Netflix, and all that. I have always dreamed of working for local media and my dream has finally come true.
