Graduate from the Atlanta Broadcast Institute-Sports Radio and Television Broadcasting. Liberty University-Communications and Marketing. Track and Field/Gymnastics-my 2 best sports! I like March Madness, Superbowl and NBA All-Star weekend better than Christmas☺ My favorite athlete is Odell Beckham Jr but Bradley Beal is a close second!!! After working for the Toronto Blue Jays, The Toronto Raptors, Fox Sports, and The Atlanta Mix Radio Sports show, it couldn’t be more obvious that the sports industry is the only industry for me. As a passionate writer and a dedicated sports fan, my experiences continue to grow as I develop into a more embellished journalist. I absolutely love palm trees, and try to be near them every chance I get! Belize is my favorite destination to date, and surfing is a hobby I would love to master. If I could go back in time, I would have trained a little harder and tried to make it to the Olympics for Track and Field-100m sprint was my best race☺

We are a credential service that assesses foreign education and gives the comparative levels in Canada. Sports writing has always been a hobby of mine, and recently, I have picked up a couple freelance jobs. I write on the PGA/NHL for BettingPros/FantasyPros.com, and am a Toronto Maple Leafs writer for the hockeywriters.com. When I’m not watching sports, I enjoy going to the gym, listening to music, or golfing. I was recently married this July, and own a German Shepherd.
