I'm the Digital News Reporter for NJ101.5.com covering news from all over the great Garden State. With the exception of a year in Hartford, and six months in Amish Country, I've spent my whole life in New Jersey, and wouldn't have it any other way. I've covered everywhere from Somerset County to the Jersey Shore, and am now looking forward to looking at the whole state. I'm a proud father, a lifelong Mets fan, and longtime lover of college and New Jersey high school wrestling.
