Hello, and welcome to my webpage. I hope you enjoy your visit.
My passion is for accurate and engaging sports coverage. It is my belief that a well-covered sports team helps create a stronger community, builds fan bases and enhances the positive experience of athletics for everyone involved.
I am currently the play-by play voice and director of communication and community outreach with the SPHL’s Fayetteville Marksmen. With the Marksmen, I called 58 games both home and away, developed a strong brand identity for the team, and used digital mediums to help the team spread news and drive revenue during the most successful season in franchise history.
The two seasons prior to that I served as the vice president of media relations for the FPHL’s Carolina Thunderbirds, calling 63 games for them in two COVID-abbreviated seasons. While with the Thunderbirds, I wrote and designed a comprehensive new media strategy for the team including a brand new, video-streamed broadcast for both home and away games, the first team in the league to do something like that at that level of quality.
Before I began my professional journey, for four years, I worked at PackTV at N.C. State serving as “The Voice of Wolfpack Ice Hockey.” While at N.C. State. I also called games for NCAA Division I men’s and women’s soccer and softball as well as other club sports such as baseball, basketball, lacrosse, volleyball and rugby.
Furthermore, at N.C. State I created and developed “The Takeaway” a series of blogs recapping and detailing Wolfpack football and men’s basketball. In my final two years, I started and served as an on-air host for “The Howler” a weekly podcast about N.C. State athletics both past and present
Outside of college, I have served as the Director of Media Relations and play-by-play voice for the Coastal Plain League’s Wilson Tobs and the Assistant Director of Media Relations and play-by-play voice for the United States Premier Hockey League’s Carolina Eagles.
At both of these places I wrote informational game notes and stat packages as well as called the game over the internet. In Wilson, I developed brand identities over social media as well as fostering quality relationships with the local and league media sources.
Nice post on ecu experience. Very responsible and accurate assessment.
