I am a senior at Washington State University in Pullman, Wash. skilled in sports play-by-play broadcasting and media relations. Currently, I am a student at The Edward R. Murrow College of Communication. I also studied at La Pontificia Universidad Católica Madre y Maestra (PUCMM) in Santiago, Dominican Republic during the 2016 spring semester.
I am the third-year play-by-play voice and communications director for the Wenatchee AppleSox Baseball Club, and also work part-time as a student assistant inside the Washington State University Athletic Communications department.
To say I grew up loving sports is an understatement; I was, and still am, consumed by sports. When I was a young kid I could be spotted in my neighborhood cul-de-sac inventing imaginary Major League Baseball games. I pretended to be the coaches, players, fans, announcers and everything in-between.
From that early age, it was evident to my family, friends, neighbors (and one speech therapist in elementary school who had to teach me not to strain my voice making crowd noises), that sports was going to be a major part of my everyday life.
While working in media relations/broadcasting, I have been lucky enough to meet incredible groups of teams, athletes, coaches, fans, and broadcasters; and each day that I go to work, I am honored to tell their stories.
Sometimes I still wonder what that cul-de-sac wiffle ball bat-yielding kid would think about living out his dream; but then again, he already was.
