At age 3 my parents moved the family from Brooklyn to the City of Newburgh thinking it would be safer place for my brother and I to grew up. That may have not turned out to be true (lol) but I'm proud of my Newburgh upbringing and believe it helped me become the person I am today! For the past 13 years, I’ve been covering local news and sports in the Tri-state Area for a host of companies, including MLB and CBS. I enjoy spending time with family and friends. I probably spend too much time at the gym and watching T.V./Sports. Some favorite shows include Lost, Breaking Bad, The Wire, Friday Night Lights, Seinfeld, and Survivor! (Watched since season 1) For a few years, I was the Sports Director for Cablevision News covering Hudson Valley sports. Each night, I was on-air anchoring while delivering probably too many "regrettable" pop culture references. After spending time commuting to NYC or Albany, I’m happy to be working again in the Hudson Valley. Each morning you can hear me on 101.5 WPDH delivering the top and trending stories of the day.
