I've covered college basketball for three years and am currently the Publisher of Panther Digest covering Pitt athletics in the Scout network after working the Pitt men's basketball beat and as Sports Editor on The Pitt News staff. I also freelance for the Associated Press covering games and writing occasional feature stories.


I graduated with a degree in English Writing from the University of Pittsburgh in April 2015.
