Hometown: Pylesville, MD
Birthday: May 18, 1987
I lived in Harford County for 17 years before leaving to attend Mount St. Mary's in Emmitsburg, MD. I majored in communications, with a concentration in journalism, and minored in English. I completed my undergraduate work in the fall of 2008 and earned my MBA in May 2011.
My hometown is Pylesville, where I graduated from North Harford High School in 2005, but moved to downtown Bel Air in July 2010 to launch the Bel Air site, where my Patch career began. While a senior at NHHS, I served as the sports columnist for the Cry of the Hawk student newspaper, which inspired me to study journalism in college. At MSM's student newspaper, The Mountain Echo, I was the sports editor all four of my undergraduate years and became managing editor in the final two. During that time I completed internships at the Frederick News-Post and SportsNetwork.com while freelancing for other media outlets, including ESPNRISE.com.
In my free time I enjoy reading, writing and watching sports. I was a scholarship player on the Mount's men's golf team and earned team MVP honors in my final two seasons as well as All-Northeast conference tournament honors in my senior year. Before playing at the Mount I was a three-time first-team All-Harford County and two-time first-team All-Maryland 1A2A selection. I also worked as the manager of the men's basketball team at Mount St. Mary's and traveled to the NCAA tournament in 2008.
