Howdy, nice to meet you!

If we all learned anything the last few years, we learned that sometimes through trials come opportunity. That has been my calling card the last several years. Missing out on the 2020 season world wide allowed me time to work on some new skills and to improve on some little things that I had not had the time to work on during a normal year. I'm glad I did because 2021 brought many opportunities to showcase the new skills. That same passion for innovation drove me in 2022 during my sixth season in Kansas City as a part of the exciting rebrand from the T-Bones to the Monarchs. I felt a great responsibility in being called the "voice of the Monarchs.” The stories I learned about the iconic name and the history of the Monarchs was a mind-blowing and humbling experience at every turn. It was a blessing to tell the story of the Monarchs. As a play-by-play broadcaster, there is always a new story to tell, and I look forward to continue to tell that story in 2023.

The 2023 season will mark my 23rd season as a play-by-play broadcaster in professional baseball. I previously spent four seasons as Director of Broadcasting/Media Relations in Gary, IN as the “Voice of the RailCats” for the Gary Southshore RailCats. I've also had stops in Charleston, West Virginia; Jacksonville, Florida; and Burlington, Iowa.  When I arrived in KC, I started and hosted the ground-breaking T-Bones "Cup of Sizzle" on game days. I also started and hosted off-season breaking news days on Facebook Live as well as the T-Bones "Pre and Post-Game Live" shows also on Facebook. These shows, which I produced, went through a rebrand and became "Reign Reborn with the Kansas City Monarchs" and "Monarchs Mocha," the club's daily show during the season. 
 
I have also been heard during the winters as the part of the Perth Heat Broadcast crew in the Australian Baseball League. I co-own TALKING BASEBALL AUSTRALIA, host a weekly ABL podcast, and create interactive social media content. I have also served as part of the Heat management team, representing Baseball Western Australia and the Heat in the North America in promotions and player procurement. My latest project includes Talking Baseball Australia, partnering in expansion of the ABL as baseball grows "down under.”
 
I believe in causes bigger than myself and support several charities worldwide, including TEAM SPENCER, the Ronald McDonald House, and I often wear pink on Sunday broadcasts to raise awareness for cancer. I earned my bachelor’s degree in Broadcast Journalism from Texas Tech University, and I am active in the alumni chapter of the Sigma Chi Fraternity.
