-- What's your favorite part of your job?

I enjoy the purity and passion in every individual I get to connect with for stories. Although, my overall favorite part of my job are the moments I get to talk, analyze and/or report on sports.

-- What's your dream story?

I’d go back in time and tell the story of the Dodgers 1988 World Series upset.

-- What did you want to be when you were growing up?

Since 6th grade I wanted to be a sports broadcast journalist.

-- What got you interested in (news, sports)?

I was privileged enough to spend my free time going to sporting events with my Dad in Los Angeles, California, growing up. We had season tickets to all kinds of sports, from the Los Angeles Kings to USC football and volleyball. Through those experiences, I developed a deep passion for sports and their culture. Now getting to convey that to an audience with a similar passion to mine is all the more rewarding.

-- What person do you most admire?

It is comfortable for me to always have individuals to admire. I admire the methodology of Colin Cowherd, the storytelling of Vin Scully, the voice of Bob Miller, the spirit of John Wooden, the talent of Anze Kopitar, the selflessness of my family, and many more.

-- What's your favorite band?

I’m a die-hard Weezer fan. I also listen to a lot of Los Angeles based rappers and Eric Church.

-- What's your favorite sport to watch?

Hockey because I have a deeper understanding of the game itself relative to other professional sports. Although – baseball, football, golf, volleyball, lacrosse, and all Olympic sports give me equivalent joy.

-- What's your proudest moment?

Obtaining my first full-time job here at KEYC-TV. After four years of grinding through college to develop myself as a sportscaster, it all paid off when I accepted this job offer.
