I was born and raised in Sioux Falls. I graduated from Sioux Falls Christian High School in 2009 and from the University of Sioux Falls in 2013. At USF, I majored in Media Studies with an emphasis in journalism. In the Media Studies program, I dabbled in all aspects of journalism. First, I was the sports editor and reporter for the newspaper, the Vessel. Second, I was an anchor/producer/reporter for College Week (30-minute television show). Lastly, I was a DJ for KCFS 94.5 (student radio station). At ESPN 99.1, I am a freelance sports writer. I write local and national articles, and a weekly Game of the Week story featuring a high school football game. When I am not writing for ESPN 99.1, he is filming and editing sports games at KDLT-News in Sioux Falls. I loves all sports, but loves basketball and football the most.
