Q.    What are you currently working on?

I am a freelance sportscaster working through WTMJ Radio Milwaukee on the Green Bay Packers, as well as other play-by-play gigs like Big Ten Network TV and Westwood One national radio NFL and NCAA.

Q.    Was there one person at Emerson who shifted the course of your career?

Emerson gave me an opportunity to be on the air and work at my craft as I went to school. Professor Walt Littlefield was the most influential teacher I had in school.

Q.    Are you professionally connected to other Emersonians? Could you share an example or two?

I don't have many connections to other Emersonians, but my son works for Jon Spector ’78 at Sony Studios in LA. Jon was my roommate at Emerson.

Q.    What’s the single most important piece of advice you’d like to give to prospective or current Emerson students about how to make the best use of what Emerson offers?

Don’t be afraid to dream. Live your dream and ultimately make it your career. Emerson and Boston gave me that opportunity!
