If this page makes me come across as self-important, I apologize. I feel like it’s impossible to not come across that way with a personal ABOUT page. I just wanted to point this out because the idea of having a page like this is something I’ve never been a fan of. Seriously, I have one because it seems like everyone else who has a personal portfolio site does.
Now that we have that out of the way . . .
I primarily cover the Celtics for WEEI.com, though I’ve covered the Red Sox and Patriots longest since 2015 and 2014, respectively. I’m also the managing editor of USA TODAY SMG’s Thunder Wire. I’ve written about sports in a lot of places prior to these two. If you really want to know which places, click here.
When it comes to broadcasting, I’ve been a frequent guest on WPRI/Fox Providence since February 2016. I’ve done radio work since 2017, having been featured on 1480 WSAR, WPRO, WEEI, and 103.7 WVEI. I also have a baseball-driven podcast, Seams Legit.
As much as I love writing about and talking about sports, I love to branch out. That’s why I review comic books for Geeks WorldWide and write about tv and movies for ScreenRant and CBR. Of course, I have an entertainment-driven podcast, too. It’s called Change My Mind.
Prior to writing about sports, I played them. While studying journalism at Northwestern University from 2010-2014, I was a pitcher for the varsity baseball. I was average at best. Here’s a link to my stats to prove it. My two favorite moments from my playing days are the first time I hit 90 MPH (topped at 91, so it’s not like I sat there) and getting to pitch in the Cape Cod League for the Falmouth Commodores (legit one game because I got called up right before the playoffs and we got bounced in the first round). For whatever the heck it’s worth, I played basketball and soccer in high school, too.
