After eight years with ESPN, most of which had me promoting our films, stellar documentaries(30 for 30) and any variety of reality shows and series (World Series of Poker, anyone? How about Dream Job?), I have moved into the realm of college sports, and it makes me giddy. I continue having fun while working my tail off for great people and content that I’d watch 24/7 whether I worked here or not. You see, I am a recovering college athlete whose spirit and enthusiasm for college sports is as strong as ever, even if my knees and other joints are not. And though there is so much to know because we televise, stream and simulcast thousands of college sports events each year, I guarantee someone on our team has the answer. When I am not trying to commit our on-air schedule dates and times to memory, my leftover bandwidth is dedicated to reading non-fiction works and writing. Also, I try to get out walking or exploring no matter where I am. This job allows me to see the biggest cities and the smallest towns, and it’s all grand to me. Having recently given up city life after six years for a return to bucolic Connecticut, I have acquired a car again. All I’m going to say out.
