Luckily, I have a big head and a strong neck. My main responsibility at the Sun Sentinel is to cover Florida Atlantic athletics. I'm a one-man Boca Raton bureau and in the past year I've been able to break the biggest news FAU has to offer. I also cover FIU athletics and chip in frequently on Miami Hurricanes coverage. My other responsibility is to be the one-man dynamo that can cover college football recruiting in the top talent producing region in the nation — South Florida. I cover Palm Beach and Broward County students, using my creation of the Sun Sentinel Megaboard to rank and track their improvements, offers and ultimately commitments (some commit four or five times.) I also am the point man for our Miami Hurricanes recruiting coverage, which makes my recruiting coverage go national. On National Singing Day, I coordinate our all-out coverage while reporting live from high schools up and down I-95. I’ve been called to cover the Panthers, Heat, Strikers, Dolphins, Marlins, Major League Lacrosse, local media, PGA Tour, UFC, WWE (no one else knew anything about Wrestlemania), prep water polo, track, volleyball, marathons, cycling, and the U.S. National Soccer teams frequently. I also do a lot of video editing work, both on my own videos and on my colleagues'. I am also the host, director and emcee the weekly prep football preview show "Sun Sentinel Pep Rally" which received corporate sponsorship and brought significant increases to the Sun Sentinel’s high school sports web traffic. I've also been called into duty as an online editor. I man the Sun Sentinel sports website for 20 hours a week, adding Gifs, videos, infographics, photos, related stories and hopefully a bit of levity to our content. I am the only sports reporter who fills this role. Previously, I was a high school and participant sports reporter, though three major investigations ended up becoming the bulk of my work. I received 2011 APSE

Multimedia recognition in the two-million-plus visitor category for my trick-shot videos with local high school athletes. • Television Host — Inside the Orange Bowl [September 2012 – Present] I host Inside the Orange Bowl, which is syndicated on Fox Sports. The show highlights games that have had significant ramifications on the 2013 BCS National Championship game and 2013 Orange Bowl. • Chicago Fire Beat Reporter — Comcast Sportsnet Chicago [March – July 2011] • Missouri Football Beat Writer — Columbia Missourian [May – December 2010] I covered the Missouri Tigers football team and the Big 12 Conference during one of the most tumultuous years in the program's history. I spent the summer of 2010 covering the conference realignment saga, traveling to meetings across the country to see if Missouri would leave the Big 12 (they would, a year later.) I was part of a team that first broke the news of sexual assault allegations against running back Derrick Washington. That reporting won first place in the APSE Breaking News category. • Sports broadcaster/personality — KCOU-FM 88.1 [September 2006 – May 2010] I was the head play-by-play announcer for Missouri Tigers soccer, club hockey, basketball, football and softball. Mizzou All-Access picked up the calls as well, and I provided live post-game video interviews with the players and coaches for Mizzou AllAccess. I also produced and hosted five different call-in programs at KCOU. In 2009 I rebuilt the live-game broadcasting system, moving from a phone-in broadcast to a live and digital broadcast through an internet proxy. This system has remained in place since my departure from KCOU. • Production Intern ESPN Radio - Chicago [Summer 2007] Awards: First place: 2010 APSE Award — Breaking News Second place 2007 Missouri Press Association best sports writer RHonorable mention: 2011 APSE Awards — Multimedia, large websites
