Who am I? Career-wise, I’m a broadcaster and aspiring author who is trying to use his limited influence to make Buffalo work for its people despite a great deal of stale status quo forcing friends and family out of town. Play-by-play and color analysis is my passion, especially in ice hockey. I’ve handled the reigns for Niagara University, Canisius and R.I.T. ice hockey, Buffalo Flash professional soccer as well as a lot of work at my beloved alma mater: University at Buffalo football, basketball and soccer are on my record. I’ve also done a lot of TV broadcasting through Time Warner Cable Sportsnet and done a massive amount of freelance writing and reporting for various newspapers and radio stations. Personally, I have a lot of interests. I’m happily married to my best friend. We live in the Town of Tonawanda with a hound dog named Ernie Banks and a baby on the way this Fall. I’m very proud of my family, both the folks who I grew up with in the Northtowns and the ones I added in South Buffalo through marriage.
