I am New Jersey 101.5's Afternoon News Anchor. I was formerly Senior Producer of Morning News and Special Programming here for four years, and Evening News Anchor for another three. I'm proud to be a member of our on-air and digital teams which have been honored with a Regional Edward R. Murrow Award, and also by the New Jersey and Keystone chapters of the Society of Professional Journalists and the New Jersey Broadcasters Association. 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 poodle, Archie.
