I was born in Los Angeles in 1978 and originally came to El Paso in 1986 at the age of 8. After moving to Chicago with my mom, sister and stepfather in 1989, I returned to El Paso permanently in 1991 to live with my father. I graduated from Coronado High School in 1997, and went on to obtain a Bachelors in Broadcast Journalism from UTEP in 2004. During my tenure at UTEP, I worked for KTEP 88.5 FM and officially began working for 600 ESPN El Paso in 2004. In 2005, I began co-hosting and producing CrunchTime and in 2007 became a reporter for Football Friday Night. In 2012, I began hosting my own podcast called “Deep Dish Sports” in honor of my love for my second home, Chicago. In 2015, I began broadcasting UTEP Women’s basketball home and road games for 600 ESPN El Paso, and in July of 2016 I became the host of CrunchTime. In 2017, I was given the prestigious honor of being named as the best DJ/Radio personality for the El Paso Times “Best of the Border.” A few of my hobbies include traveling, going to the movies, playing golf and spending time with family and friends. My favorite teams are the Chicago White Sox, Bulls, Blackhawks, Cowboys, UTEP and Mizzou. Overall, I consider myself to be one of the most fortunate people in the world because I am truly living my dream as a sportscaster for ESPN El Paso.
