I am a life-long resident of the Southern Ohio area and am an award-winning writer. When I was a sports writer, I won two Associated Press awards for columns I wrote — one was for a column I wrote about my interview with Boston Celtics legend Larry Bird. I also won an award from the Ohio Prep Sports Writers Association.  As a broadcaster and news director, I won an award from the Ohio News Network. Then in television, I won a sales award from The WB Network.

For the past several years, I have been a pharmaceutical sales professional.  I have been dabbling in the freelance arena and have had articles published in Sports Spectrum — a quarterly magazine dedicated to highlighting Christian athletes. I interviewed Andy Pettitte of the New York Yankees and recently spent some time with Andy Dalton of the Cincinnati Bengals. I am a contributing writer for OneChristianVoice.com, Sohiovoice.com, and am also a guest blogger for Almost an Author, and have been published in The Sports Column as well as ToddStarnes.com and in Clubhouse Magazine — a publication of Focus on the Family.

In addition, I write for PM Magazine, a quarterly publication that highlights the positive aspects of Southern Ohio, where I live with my wife Angie. We have raised two godly men who are both preachers, and Angie sings and plays piano at Rubyville Community Church.
