Having been raised in the great city of Cleveland, a passion for sports has been engrained in me since I was a child. Cheering for the Browns, Cavs, and Indians (now Guardians) are some of my fondest memories growing up and they continue to be today. Sports have taught me the importance of teamwork, discipline, work ethic, and leadership, and I am grateful to have a career in a field that helps to instill these positive characteristics in others.

In high school I played football and baseball, however after a few unfortunate injuries to my shoulder, my journey was cut short. My goal, in turn, is to help others continue their athletic careers and gain the opportunity to play at the next level. Thankfully, NCSA provides this amazing platform to afford such a rewarding experience to everyone involved.

I graduated from the University of Colorado Boulder in 2021. There I studied Anthropology and Journalism and continued to find ways to pursue my passion for athletics by taking sports broadcasting and journalism classes. At one point, I worked on the broadcast side of a Colorado Rockies game, and that experience pushed me to take up a career in the wide world of sports. After graduating, I worked part-time with the Cleveland Browns in the Guest Services department before starting here at NCSA.

Being out in Colorado, I discovered new outlets for physical activity like snowboarding, rock climbing, and backpacking. I have always had a strong love and appreciation for the outdoors, and Colorado was the perfect place to take advantage of that.

Along with the aforementioned, some other hobbies of mine include skeet shooting, reading, talking sports, and running my dog in the woods.

Currently, I reside in Cleveland, OH. However, my goal in the near future is to make it back out to the Rocky Mountains.
