I am a Duquesne Unversity graduate with a bachelor's degree in Print Journalism. I currently reside in Erie PA, nestled in the middle of Buffalo, Cleveland and Pittsburgh, and I am attaining my Masters Degree in Communications and Media Studies from Edinboro University. I have written numerous sports stories for the Erie Times-News, and I previously served as Sports Editor of my college's student newspaper, The Duquesne Duke. I was also president of the University's SPJ chapter. As a senior in high school, I worked as a sports reporter for Gazette Newspapers. Since then, I have had over 100 clips published in The Duquesne Duke, I served as the Duquesne sports beat reporter for Examiner.com and I have had 20 clips published in the Erie Times News. My first book entitled General McLane Athletics: Stories From the First Fifty Years was released in December 2010.
