About

I joined the NHL landscape in 2018 and currently serve as a television host and analyst for the NHL's Dallas Stars on Bally Sports Southwest (formerly FOX Sports). From NHL Drafts to a Winter Classic to the 2020 Kraft Hockeyville Game in El Paso, Texas -- and more -- my career has been fortunate to include Emmy-winning work, a decade of play-by-play experience, freelance hosting with MLB's Texas Rangers, and radio drive-time experience since 2007. Originally from the Midwest -- this journey has taken me through three top-25 media markets, a top-40 market, and six cities overall. In 2020, 2021, and 2023, our broadcast team has been voted top-5 in the NHL by The Athletic.

My career began in college, before expanding into a 10-year trek throughout hockey's minor leagues -- where I also oversaw the communications, content, and some hockey operations needs for a variety of franchises.
