The Herald ran a feature on me that highlights my preparation for broadcasts. Below is the interactive graphic they made from one of my game charts:

I took driver's training, passed the test, and got my license for only one reason: I wanted to drive to Candlestick Park and the Oakland Coliseum to "broadcast" baseball games. From the Bay Area to Syracuse University and then ping-ponging the coast from Vermont to North Carolina with stops in Burlington, Boiling Springs, Charlotte, Hickory, Middlebury, Radford, Rock Hill and Spartanburg, it has been a tremendous journey calling games, meeting people, learning and growing. Thanks for visiting my site. Thanks for helping to make my dreams come true.

My fourth grade teacher at Brookside Elementary School was Laurette Rogers. In the spring she assigned her students state reports. By that time I had realized I was not going to shoot a jumper like Chris Mullin or hit a fastball like Mark McGwire. Even though I knew that I was not going to play sports for a living, I sure did like watching and talking about them. I chose to do my report on New York, home of Syracuse University. In 2003, I broadcast Jim Boeheim and Carmelo Anthony's National Title Game victory courtside in New Orleans.

From SU, I have traveled the country broadcasting games. For a decade Auburn Doubledays, Hickory Crawdads, and Charlotte Knights baseball kept me busy throughout the summer.

Following two seasons at the University of Vermont, and one year at Radford University, I received an opportunity to broadcast basketball games at Winthrop University. For 17 years I followed the Eagles, a great run including five NCAA Tournament appearances highlighted by a 2007 First Round victory over Notre Dame.

Football play-by-play duties at Middlebury College, Johnson C. Smith University, and Gardner-Webb University concluded in 2023 with the Runnin' Bulldogs second consecutive FCS Playoffs appearance.

The Southern Conference created an outside-the-box position that I accepted late in 2023. The tradition rich league wanted a play-by-play broadcaster who could imagine digital content and act as the Voice and Face of the conference.

I've been fortunate to cover the NBA, NFL and MLB at different points along the way.

After I received my Masters from Winthrop in May 2010, that degree has enabled me to become an Adjunct Professor of Mass Communications at Winthrop and Queens University of Charlotte.

I was married in the summer of 2010. My wife and I have been fortunate to travel extensively.

The role of broadcaster has evolved over the years. When I got to Winthrop University, the primary responsibility of my position was describing the action in vivid detail for our audience, adding context and color, and hosting coaches shows. While I have always tried to chip in on a variety of projects, my role changed at the start of the 2017-2018 season. After significant collaboration with colleagues and senior administration, the approach shifted dramatically. Along with my great friend and broadcast partner Mike Pacheco, we produced a wide range of social and digital companion content to go along with our radio broadcasts. All of the videos were released on Winthrop's social and digital media platforms and some of our favorites are archived on the Winthrop Sports Network.


The Bearded Carcast was a meandering conversation about the places we went and things we saw while traveling along with the Winthrop basketball program. Part travelogue, part sports talk show, and part friends hanging out, it was recorded in the car going to or from games.

The D.A. Show

I have been friends with Damon Amendolara since our college days at Syracuse. After stops in Kansas City and Boston, he worked at CBS Sports Radio from 2012 until late 2023 before transitioning to SiriusXM. In the early days I occasionally hopped on to talk about the NCAA Tournament and then became an Olympic correspondent, reporting live from Rio. For a couple of seasons I picked college football games for the show. After losing a contest in 2020, I promised to use some of the show's favorite catch phrases during a Winthrop broadcast. This concept caught fire. Eagle fans loved it, DAliens couldn't get enough, and we even got some publicity for the Garnet & Gold on national TV. Winthrop/Taco T-shirts became a commodity.
