A lifelong New Yorker, I spent four of my best years in Happy Valley where I became a proud Penn State alumnus in May 2016. I soaked up a ton of knowledge to jumpstart an award-winning journalism career.

My past reporting stops at the Centre Daily Times, StateCollege.com, and CityofBasketballLove.com saw me extensively cover Penn State football and basketball from Christian Hackenberg's pro day to the Penn State-Michigan hoops and hockey doubleheader at The Garden - plus plenty of games and events between!

Opponents have their work cut out when facing a Penn State women's soccer team that offers a multitude of threats, with 11 different players reaching the back of the net this season.
