In Milton, Ontario was where I grew up and was raised, in the gym was where I’d spend most of my days!
When I look back at my past, I’ve always aspired to be a high achiever in whatever I do, whether it was academics or athletics.
If I wasn’t playing sports, I was watching it on TV. I’ve always had an opinionated and analytical view of sports. My favourite sports are hockey, golf, and tennis.
My love for sports has translated into becoming a sportscaster in the Ontario Junior Hockey League (OJHL). Since 2014, I’ve worn all the hats of being a Host, Colour Commentator, and a Play-by-Play Announcer in the OJHL. I would say my passion is certainly hockey, and just being at the rink is the ultimate form of happiness to me.
A quirky aspect of my personality is that I am a huge fan of Rocky Balboa, and I love doing Arnold Schwarzenegger impersonations. My favorite superhero is Batman (because it’s not who I am underneath, but what I DO, that defines me!). I believe that bringing my own unique personality is what sets me apart from others in the field.
I heard the most meaningful quote from a fellow colleague at an OJHL game a few years ago. I told him, “You know, I’m trying to make it in media, and it’s a tough road, especially if you want to make it a financially viable career.” What he said in reply is what I still remember to this day:
“Don’t do it for money or feel you have to for your career – do it for the Love of the Game.”
Why Should You Hire Me?
I like to consider myself a jack-of-many-trades. (I think the metaphor of a Swiss Army knife is accurate here!).
I always bring passionate energy and enthusiasm everywhere I go!
I have the experience, as I’ve been working in television for the past 6 years (since 2011). My work has ranged from being a Sportscaster, TV Host, Sports Anchor, Producer, MC, Model, and even an Actor.
Some of the shows I’ve hosted and produced on community television with COGECO TV include Crash with Prash, FYI, Just Move, and Halton Insider. I’ve done commentary at local Christmas parades. I’ve been an MC at community events. And I’ve even done some radio!
I have learned to work with various people of different backgrounds and as part of a team and crew. I am a flexible, outgoing “people person” who is a team player.
Finally, I take my craft very seriously. While I do consider myself a perfectionist, I know that creativity and entertainment are also important factors to strive for in the media world. I continue to take courses and workshops in acting, hosting, and voice work as continuous methods of self-improvement.
If you hire me, you will have someone who will #JustKeepSmiling and #JustKeepPunching every single day!
