About Me

I came back home to South Florida when I joined WPLG-Local 10 (Miami) in March of 1999. During my time here, I've kept busy by working in sports, news and even dabbled in entertainment.  I am currently the station's sports director. 


Although I'm originally from Weehawken, New Jersey, I grew up in South Florida, where most of my family still lives. I'm a proud graduate of the University of Miami with degrees in broadcast journalism and history.   


I started my broadcast career as a sports anchor/reporter in Missoula, Montana. After a year in Big Sky land, I went on to work at WOTV in Battle Creek, Michigan as a sports anchor/reporter. Eventually I made my way back home to South Florida.  


Since 2013, I've also been a proud member of the television broadcast team for the Miami Heat on Fox Sports Sun.


In my free time, I love going to the gym and talking sports, but most of my activities these days consist of keeping up with my daughters, Katelyn and Eva. 


I'm involved in a number of community events and often speak at local schools. I also emcee numerous events throughout the year and am a member of the National Association of Hispanic Journalists.
