I am approaching my second season as radio voice of the Nashville Sounds, the Triple-A affiliate of the Milwaukee Brewers. Game broadcasts can be heard on 102.5 “The Game” in the Nashville area as well as via an internet webcast available on the Sounds’ website.
Before joining the Sounds, I spent seven seasons as the play-by-play announcer for the Kane County Cougars, the Single-A affiliate of the Kansas City Royals. During baseball off-seasons I also called high school basketball games and for several years hosted a sports-talk radio show on the Cougars’ flagship station.
Career highlights to this point include joining the Sounds (obviously) and, while with the Cougars, calling three games from a major league stadium (Wrigley Field in ’08, ’10; Busch Stadium in ’11) as well as four no-hitters (thrown by “my” team, at least), one Midwest League All-Star Game and one League Championship Series. I’ve also enjoyed getting to know and observe hundreds of hard-working players, including current major league standouts Andrew Bailey, Trevor Cahill, Cliff Pennington and Jemile Weeks.
I’m a graduate of the University of Iowa and began my professional broadcasting career three days after graduation thanks to an opportunity with the Battle Creek Yankees. I’m originally from Aurora, Ill.
