A Voice For All Seasons

Thanks for visiting my site, and allowing me to share who I am and what I do.

Regarding the former, I am, first and always, an extremely fortunate husband and father. As such, I’m no worse than tied for first, among the luckiest guys I know.

Concerning the latter, I’m just as fortunate, doing what I love, as a broadcaster and writer based in the Boston area.

Instead of boring you with my resume, I’ll simply recite a handful of career highlights:

  • The last 16 years, I’ve enjoyed the privilege of calling radio play-by-play for the U.S. Naval Academy football team. There’s nothing like Army-Navy; in anything.
  • I’ve benefited from a long association with the Patriot League, and continue to call its basketball games for the CBS Sports Network. Before Lehigh shocked Duke — and nearly everyone else — I was thrilled to see them earn that opportunity last March in the Patriot League championship.
  • I am also an experienced baseball broadcaster, lending a soundtrack to the summer for fans of the Triple-A Albuquerque Isotopes, Norfolk Tides and Pawtucket Red Sox. I was hired by the 2004 ‘King of Baseball,’ Dave Rosenfield, to be the original ‘voice’ of Homer Simpson’s favorite team.
  • As a freelance writer, I’m always interested in telling a story that touches others and transcends sports. Some of my latest work appeared in the NCAA Tournament game program and on the U.S. Olympic Comittee’s official site, www.TeamUSA.org.
