I joined WIBW in August of 2014 following four years at the University of Missouri. Born and raised in Dallas, I learned early on how to cope with heartbreak (here's to you, Cowboys and Rangers).

Since an early age, I've loved the art (and it is an art) of talking. I never hesitate to approach someone and have a conversation with them. My ability to hold conversations has led me to develop a wide range of sources and to find out about stories most people are unaware of.

My first love is sports, and it doesn't matter what sport. I have lost sleep staying awake and watching YouTube videos of Australian Rules Football, or camping in front of a TV and watching baseball all day long. I think Opening Day, Selection Sunday, and Breakfast at Wimbledon should be considered national holidays. With my passion comes an in-depth understanding of what's happening both on and off the field. I love learning the history and background of both local and national sports stories, and I love telling the public about both.

More about me: my family is sports-centric. I have a sister who was a Division 1 gymnast, and a father who is a professional napper while watching golf on TV. My mom worked in sports, including time at SMU and the Dallas Mavericks. Away from sports, I love to sit on my couch with a Dr. Pepper in my hand and a standup comedian on my TV.

If you see me out and about, do not hesitate to come up and talk with me. I love meeting new people and hearing everyone's story (and everyone does have a story). I'm excited to be in Topeka, and I'm thrilled I get to bring you the latest and greatest from the world of sports.
