About: My journey to The Clarion-Ledger began in Millbury, Massachusetts, where I was born and raised. Apparently, there's video evidence that shows me dropping my R's but I lost that habit at Syracuse University. I spent two more years in Central New York with The Citizen, before working in Upstate New York for a year with the Post-Star. I moved west in 2012 to Cedar Rapids, Iowa to work at the Gazette and KCRG-TV. I played catch with my dad at the Field of Dreams and bought a moto-meter from the American Pickers. I've covered Mississippi State since 2013, writing about a College World Series finals, an Orange Bowl and the football program's rise to No. 1.
