Born and raised in Waldorf, I began writing for Southern Maryland Newspapers as a sports reporter in August 2008. It was my first full-time reporting job. I graduated from West Virginia Wesleyan College with a bachelor’s of arts in communications and a minor in business. I was also a member of the men’s basketball team at WVWC during my four years there. I worked as a part-time freelancer and intern for several publications in West Virginia during my college tenure. I also was an intern at Southern Maryland Newspapers in summer 2006. I’m a 2004 graduate of Maurice J. McDonough High School, where I was a Southern Maryland Athletic Conference first teamer and All-County Player of Year honoree as a senior. I continue to have SMAC ties to the community through writing stories and interviewing coaches and players. My favorite hobbies are listening to music, spending time with family, keeping up with the sports news daily or playing sports-related games on Xbox 360.
