As a lifelong follower of the NBA and the Sixers specifically, I was born in Philadelphia and grew up in Clarks Summit, Pennsylvania. I attended The University of Pittsburgh and graduated in 2009 with a bachelor’s degree in Communications Studies. I have continued my studies in Philadelphia at Temple University, graduating in 2012 with a master’s degree in Broadcasting, Telecommunications, and Mass Media. I have covered the 76ers, and the NBA at large, for various outlets – including ESPN, Philly.com, and Fansided –since 2009. In addition to working as a 76ers Insider for ESPN 97.3, I am also a Regional NBA/NFL Writer for 247Sports and CBS Interactive, and co-hosts a Sixers-centric podcast, 76ers Report. I currently reside in Philadelphia.
