My goal as a kid was never to be a sportscaster. My dream was to have a job where I didn't wake up dreading going to work every day. I found that in broadcasting. Don't get me wrong, anyone who has ever been a weekend sportscaster in Scottsbluff, Nebraska or Sioux City, Iowa, can tell you how grueling it can be. But I've been in the business since 1994 and have never once said darn I have to go to work today. Think about it, I get to talk about sports all day long, what can be better than that? Ok, maybe breaking 80 for the first time on the golf course or actually being able to play an entire song on the guitar. I've had one for more than a decade and still can't play a lick.
I am a southern California native and graduate of California State University Fullerton.
I began my television career in Scottsbluff, Nebraska. I worked at KDUH-TV. I know it spells K-DUH but it was a great place to learn. I worked there for 11 months before moving to Sioux City, Iowa.
I spent four and a half years as the weekend sports anchor at KTIV.
I joined the KSEE 24 Sports Team in December 1999. In 2003, I was promoted to Sports Director, anchoring the 5, 6, 6:30 and 11 p.m. newscasts. In October 2005, I helped launch KSEE 24 Sports Central, the Valley's only local sports show. In August 2008, I helped launch The Bulldog Insider, a half hour show dedicated to Fresno State Athletics.
In my free time I enjoy spending time with my wife Kristine, golfing and trying to play the guitar.
