Experience is everything and I am not going to sugar coat it, I have done a lot. From working ESPN Monday Night Football games to traveling to cover UNH football in San Diego, my love and passion has brought me new adventures. My freshman year was the most important year of my life where I was hired by UNH athletic’s to work in the production department and bring fans the ultimate experience. As time has gone on, the department has progressed from a one-camera stream to ESPN3-type productions. Getting myself involved within UNH productions guided me to 91.3 FM WUNH Durham (the local student-run radio station). Here I developed my identity, “No Nawnsense.” This has stuck for years now and with a lot of help, I have developed into a strong on-air personality. After three years, I was chosen as the new sports director and led my team to another promising year where almost every sport here on campus was covered. Most importantly, I have been able to guide and develop students to showcase their love for sports and take the next step towards their ultimate goals just like myself.
I started broadcasting in 2013, and upon graduation at the University of New Hampshire, I am happy to say I have successfully broadcasted every sport on campus. I became another UNH hockey play-by-play announcer and continued a thirty-year plus tradition. I have shaken new hands, gotten important numbers and emails, but most importantly made people smile. It is a process and as time continues to pass by I know my love and passion for sport won’t go away.
Great moments are born from great opportunity, and that's what you have here tonight, boys. That's what you've earned here tonight. One game; if we played them ten times, they might win nine. But not this game, not tonight. Tonight, we skate with them. Tonight we stay with them, and we shut them down because we can. Tonight, we are the greatest hockey team in the world. You were born to be hockey players—every one of you, and you were meant to be here tonight. This is your time. Their time is done. It's over. I'm sick and tired of hearing about what a great hockey team the Soviets have. Screw 'em. This is your time. Now go out there and take it!
