I began my play-by-play broadcasting career at Woodland Regional High School, where I called football, basketball and volleyball for WRHS Media. I continued to broadcast at Quinnipiac University, where I called more than a half-dozen sports — ice hockey, basketball, baseball, softball, soccer, volleyball and field hockey — for the Quinnipiac Bobcats Sports Network. I also enjoyed a broadcasting internship with the Newport Gulls of the New England Collegiate Baseball League.
I entered the world of professional broadcasting in 2012, when I took over the longstanding tradition of calling Naugatuck Valley League high school football on WATR 1320 AM in Waterbury, Conn.
Below is a sample of clips from my play-by-play broadcasting career.
