I am originally from West Tennessee, but have lived in Central Florida for the past 24 years. I played football and graduated from the University of Tennessee-Martin. In 2021, I received UTM’s Communications Department Distinguished Alumni award. After college, I worked for newspapers in Tennessee and Florida for 18 years and won eight national writing awards as a sports reporter. In 2009, I was hired by UCF Athletics Department to be the lead staff writer and cover all of its sports teams. From 2012-20, I worked for the Orlando Magic where I covered the team daily and wrote all of the stories on OrlandoMagic.com. I started work with Otter PR in March and have greatly enjoyed my time while learning more about PR and helping clients have tremendous success. My girlfriend, Liz, and I have two children — Abby (17) and Dylan (15). Both are great students and athletes and are the center of our universes. In my spare time, I cover the NBA and college football for The Associated Press and I am a regular analyst/contributor to Spectrum Sports’ FaceOff and 360 TV shows in Central Florida.
I had tremendous success while working with Bitcoin of America, helping them earn several major media placements. In addition to two televised spots on CBS WFOR-TV (Channel 4, Miami), I helped Bitcoin of America get coverage in the Miami Herald, Yahoo Business and Advisor Hub.
