I'm a Texas boy born and raised, but couldn't be more excited to be here in Huntsville, Alabama! The chance to cover SEC football is a dream come true, so I jumped at the chance to be a part of the WHNT News 19 Sports Team.

Back home in Texas I attended West Texas A&M University where I majored in Mass Communications/Broadcasting. After graduating, my first job in TV was in my hometown of Amarillo. A photographer job at KFDA, where I actually met and worked with Ryan Cody.

After about a year of working in Amarillo, I accepted a Weekend Sports Anchor Job at KWES in Midland, Texas. Then two years later my good friend Ryan gave me a call about a job, and now I'm here in Huntsville!

Football has and always will be my passion, that's why I feel this is the perfect job. Playing and covering high school and college ball in the state of Texas was great, but the level of passion for SEC football here in north Alabama is a different world that I can't wait to be a part of. That said, I love anything and everything about all sports!
