Nice to meet you.

It’s not enough to be curious, you have to be willing to act on that curiosity. That’s when things really get interesting — and fun.

From working on the cutting edge of digital news during the early days of MSNBC.com, to helping launch a brand new regional sports network, to diving head-first into podcasting, I’ve always tried to stay curious.

This business is an adventure and there is always something new waiting around the corner!
