Journalism and Sports Broadcasting double major at Texas Christian University

About Me

Originally from the San Francisco Bay Area, I’m a journalism and sports broadcasting double major at Texas Christian University. While working toward my double major, I also work various freelance jobs.

I currently host TCU Baseball pre and post game shows and provide radio play-by-play on 88.7 FM KTCU The Choice.

As a writer and reporter for KillerFrogs FanNation network on SI.com, I cover TCU Football, Baseball, Women’s Soccer and Men’s/Women’s Basketball. I also host pregame and postgame shows for TCU Baseball and Women’s Basketball on KTCU 88.7 FM The Choice. Additionally I host the weekly sports-talk radio show Riff Ram Review on KTCU, Spotify and Apple Podcasts, and write locally for Scorebook Live (SB Live).

In the Summer of 2023, I was the play-by-play broadcaster for Texas United FC in the USL League 2. Based in Plano, Texas I traveled to Louisiana and Arkansas to cover the team’s away matches. I also have experience working with broadcast cameras as well as EVS replay and graphics for ESPN+ broadcast.

In January of 2024, I was selected to join the Society of Professional Journalists Sports Committee as a Committee Member, working and pushing through all social media channels.

In May of 2024, I accepted an internship as a broadcast intern with the Southern Maryland Blue Crabs of the Atlantic League of Professional Baseball (ALPB). Located in Waldorf, Maryland, I drove from Fort Worth, TX following the conclusion of the semester to join the organization.

I’m a motivated, resourceful person who thrives in demanding situations, willing to take on and learn from the most challenging opportunities. My experiences living overseas and diverse upbringing have allowed me to understand different perspectives and work in both team and individual settings. Playing sports competitively from an early age instilled discipline and dedication in everything I do. I value and respect others, holding myself to the highest standards as I strive to be an effective leader. 

I am eager to learn more and make an impact as a professional in the journalism and broadcasting industry.
