Director of Sports Content and News Reporter

I lead the NCN Sports Now Team as our Director of Sports Content and am also a news reporter for News Channel Nebraska, covering the University of Nebraska and the Legislature.

Born and raised in Lincoln, I graduated from Northeast High School in 2007 and earned a degree in Broadcast Journalism from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln in December of 2012.

Before joining News Channel Nebraska in 2014, I worked as a play-by-play announcer, sideline reporter, show host, producer and director where I covered professional, collegiate and high school sports for NET, Time Warner Cable, Cox Communications, the Lincoln Saltdogs and the Nebraska Wesleyan Sports Network.

My love for sports doesn't stop at just covering them. I get my competitive fix by playing in weekly soccer and softball leagues. Other hobbies include boating, video games and raising my brand new daughter Naomi with my wife Emily.

I love rooting for the Huskers, Kansas City Chiefs, and Arsenal Football Club."
