When did you start at OwlSports Update?
What is your current job?
Comedy Writer's Assistant
"Originally from Santa Monica, CA, I decided to go to Temple because of TUTV. I wanted to learn how to produce TV shows, and Matt Fine's Owl Sports Update was the most accomplished, hands-on program I could find anywhere in the country. Upon arriving at Temple, I started volunteering at TUTV and WHIP Radio, eventually getting lucky enough to Anchor and Produce for Matt and OSU, and call Play-by-Play for WHIP Radio's Basketball and Football broadcasts. After 7 semesters with both outlets, I returned home to participate in Temple's Study Away Los Angeles Program, where my prior TUTV experience helped me land a Talent and Development internship with Comedy Central, and later a position on one of its late night shows. I currently live and work in Los Angeles."
