Bio: I am from Lincoln, Nebraska and grew up a die-hard Huskers fan and Buffalo sports fan, before devoting my fandom to all things U of M in 2016. You can hear me on almost every Michigan football broadcast since 2017, plenty of Michigan basketball broadcasts including the 2019 B1G Tournament, Michigan water polo, and several other non-revenue sport broadcasts. Perhaps my proudest achievement with WCBN has been fulfilling my destiny as a Nebraskan Michigan sports broadcaster and calling every game of Michigan’s legendary CWS run in June 2019. Alongside being the Director of Broadcast Ops at WCBN Sports, I have worked as a data visualization intern for Michigan hockey, and unofficially serve as the Big Ten’s chief apologist. I worked as a resource planning intern for the Nebraska Public Power District this past summer. Talk to me about anything relating to using math and statistics to solve problems, sports history, geography, and Midwestern values.
