I have competed in various sports on different teams throughout my life, I have coached a children’s farm league team which included a championship. I played on a Championship Pony Colt baseball team “Phillies”, along with playing flag football as a young man. I am by a nature a very competitive person and have always had a passion for the game of football. I decided to interview former players to the delight of a loyal fan-base, which presented a very unique challenge as to how I would acquire players to interview on my show. My desire was to start interviewing former Pittsburgh Steelers Players with the goal in mind to work in the Sports Broadcasting Industry.
I’ve appeared on shows such as “The Bev Smith Show” discussing real sports related topics, including ESPN Radio with Freddie Coleman talking about the NFL, The Coach Les Show on SB Nation Radio, the NBA, U.S. Olympics and many others.
A random professional photo taken by a man who approached me after practice asking me if the photo was indeed me. I replied by asking him if he could send it to me. He did, in fact send it.
Throughout my time as an intern at 970 ESPN [Pittsburgh, PA], some of the people that I had the great opportunity to interview and meet at the 2014 Steelers Training Camp. were Dick LeBeau [Former Defensive Coordinator] Ryan Shazier, Heath Miller, Jeff Mauro and many others. Some of the players I have interviewed to date include: Tyrone Carter, Marshall McFadden, Levon Kirkland, Mike Logan, Jeff Reed, Willie Williams, Jerome Bettis, Rod Woodson, Max Starks, Andrew Russell and many more.
My whole life, it’s been a dream of mine to be a radio broadcaster and/or have my own show. Who would have guessed that the internet would create an opportunity to share what I love best with the people who care the most about listening to not only the player, but listen inventively as to who they are “beyond the numbers“. I decided to gamble at the age of 40 years of age to redirect my attention to a voice over course at Del Mar Media Arts, Irvine, Ca in 2013 which was a commitment that would help diversify my career even further.
I have been attending Fullerton College in Fullerton, Ca and will be acquiring my Sports Broadcasting Certification in 2017. My destination through hard work, determination, passion, drive and persistence is to call play by play or color commentary for an NFL Franchise. I also recently covered the 2017 ESPY’S in Los Angeles, Ca for SB Nation Radio and PAC12 Media Days in Hollywood, Ca.
