I was born and raised in Tampa, Florida. I studied journalism and athletic coaching at the University of Central Florida before attending Florida State University where I graduated with a bachelor’s degree in humanities with a specialization in communication and 20th Century Studies. After college, I worked for nine years in sports and talk radio in such roles as co-host, executive producer and digital content coordinator. During this time, I also covered professional and college sports as a journalist for a variety of newspapers and websites before becoming an assistant football coach at Tampa Catholic High School. I am very passionate about skiing and I have always wanted to live in the mountains, so I moved to Colorado in search of a new opportunity and couldn’t be happier with where I am.
