Growing up in Suncook, New Hampshire, I learned the basics of the industry during my tenure at Suffolk University in Boston before relocating to Phoenix, Arizona to work full-time with The Arizona Republic before joining USA TODAY Sports in 2021. In Phoenix, I served as a beat writer for the Arizona Coyotes and Arizona Diamondbacks until 2020. Prior to my arrival in Phoenix, I began my amateur career in journalism by interning with WTPL Radio in Concord, N.H. While there, I co-hosted a sports talk show with Boston sports broadcasting legend Bob Lobel during my tenure at Pembroke Academy high school. After graduating in 2013, I began attending Suffolk as a Broadcast Journalism major and began working with The Boston Globe at the end of my freshman year, covering high school sports. The same year, I launched a sports blog/website, where I worked as editor-in-chief and senior writer for 5 years. For the next 3 years I worked for The Boston Globe, where I covered several college teams (University of New Hampshire football, UMass football, Harvard basketball), numerous high school teams and sports, as well as various pro teams.
