What is your current job?
Production Assistant at NBC Sports Philadelphia
"Although I'm not a 4/4 Philly sports fan (go Steelers), I have been blessed to find a job covering the most exciting and passionate sports cities in the world. In my free time I like to watch even more sports, catch up with friends (a lot of them from OSU), play guitar, and watch shows from the 2000s because that was the perfect era of television for me."
Favorite Memory with OwlSports Update?
"I got the chance to go to San Antonio, Texas for the College Broadcasters, Inc. awards due to OSU's multiple nominations. Being able to travel and represent OwlSports Update was an incredible experience. There were people coming in from all around the country to lead seminars about sports and media coverage and what it meant to be in the business. I was able to take it all in and also bring home some hardware for the team and I couldn't have asked for a more rewarding opportunity."
