I am New Jersey 101.5's Morning Drive Producer/Reporter, formerly the station's Evening News Anchor from 2013 to 2016. I'm proud to be a member of our on-air and digital teams which were honored by the New Jersey chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists, for coverage of the 2016 Seaside Park bombing, and by the New Jersey Broadcasters Association, for the 2015 fatal Amtrak derailment. I got my start in radio at The College of New Jersey, on student-run WTSR-FM, and graduated from TCNJ in 2009. Before coming to 101.5, I did news and sports for WGHT-AM in Pompton Lakes and WYNY-FM in Milford, PA. In a previous life as a child actor, I appeared in the Broadway cast of "Beauty and the Beast" from 1994 to 1996. I live in Hunterdon County with my wife, Kristen, and our 6-pound toy poodle and life of the party, Archie.
