Bachelor’s in journalism, Metropolitan State College of Denver
Western Slope Colorado native born in Glenwood Springs raised in New Castle.
I joined the Sentinel sports department on April 1, 2013.
I wrote a book on my hometown of New Castle and its rich history of coal mining, railroads and wild-west roots.
Prior to finishing college at 31 years old and getting into journalism I worked in a variety of fields, some of those include coal mining, garbage collection, cemetery worker, pizza delivery (I was robbed three times), cook, bartender, janitor, waiter, construction worker, carpenter, forklift operator, truck driver and disc jockey to name a few.
