What is your current job?
Video Production Manager at Lafayette College
"I am from Coopersburg, PA. I graduated from Temple in 2016, and started at Lafayette in the fall of that same year. Before Lafayette, I interned at NFL Network, Penn Athletics, and NFL Films. I also had the opportunity to work for ESPN College GameDay twice while at Temple, in the fall of my senior year."
Favorite Memory with OwlSports Update?
"Winning the Emmy for Best Live Sports Production in 2015 with Andrew McDevitt and Jon DiMuzio. Walt Ruff was also a part of that team, but was unable to attend the event. Such a surreal moment, and I will never forget it.
About a day before our last MRW show, APENPS crashed. The program wasn't working, and its the program that builds the rundown and scripts for our show. So we have to improvise. I started a Google Doc for our script, then we created the rundown in Excel. It was the most chaotic show day ever, but if you go back and watch that show, you wouldn't notice a thing. Big credit to Kay Lutz, Tommy Sladek and Zach Gelb for rolling with the punches and making it work."
