I became ensconced in the world of sports through the game of baseball. I lived a portion of my dream when I was drafted by the San Francisco Giants in 2004. As a fifth year senior from an NAIA school, Point Loma Nazarene University, the chance of the phone ringing was not good. But surprisingly, it did. For a boy who learned the nuances of baseball from his father, nothing gave me greater pleasure than to call my dad and deliver the news. It will forever be one of the greatest joys of my life.
But the dream did not last long. Three years later I was out of affiliate ball, and struggling to find a roster spot in independent baseball. It was time to move on. With a Communication degree, but no experience in the field I desired to work, I returned to school. Earning credits through the Ohio Center for Broadcasting, Colorado Campus, I completed internships with Fox Sports Net Rocky Mountain and KOA 850.
My first break came from KLST-TV in San Angelo, TX as a weekend sports anchor. Since then I have had an opportunity to call Triple-A baseball, co-host a sports talk show, broadcast college basketball and baseball athletics, produce and host AHL Hockey.
I feel so blessed to not only work in Sports Broadcasting but do it in my home state, and more so in America's finest city.
