It's not often you hear people say, "I love waking up at 2:00 in the morning," but I actually do. That's why I am beyond flattered to join the hardest working morning show in Tampa and be a part of a very impressive group of journalists. As a bonus, I am able to live near relatives and settle my family in the beautiful state of Florida.
From ESPN Radio, FOX Sports, creating and producing a travel show with my wife and four daughters, hosting, reporting and anchoring, I've been blessed to be involved with a lot of unique and very cool opportunities that span a broadcast career of
15 years. Along the way, I've been honored to receive several awards (Emmy, AP). However, the greatest reward for me is being able to contribute to local charities. Having had six family members die of Cancer, my heart is close to working with organizations such as the American Cancer Society and St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. My wife and I also enjoy volunteering with the Ronald McDonald House.
I'm a proud graduate of the University of Texas in Arlington with a BA in Broadcast Communication, an author of three books and when I'm not spending every waking moment with my family, I like to attend sporting events, watch movies, eat at fabulous local restaurants, attend church and travel around whatever state I'm in looking for family friendly vacation spots.
And now I'm proud to call Tampa Bay my home! If you have a story idea, breaking news or need an emcee for a charity event, feel free to contact me.
