Life Goal - To be a good dad to some great kiddos

Play any sports/Favorite Sport - I played just about everything growing up. Basketball is my favorite to play, football is my favorite to watch.

Favorite TV Show - Any sport on TV, SportsCenter, Entourage, How I Met Your Mother, Arrested Development

Favorite Car - My first, a 1993 Eddie Bauer Ford Bronco. It was awesome. In fact, I'm positive its why my wife married me…

Happiest moment in my life was - the day I got married

4 notable persons you'd invite to dinner - Jesus Christ, Vince Lombardi, Brad Nessler and Abraham Lincoln

Favorite food - Cheeseburgers of any sort or Subway.

I have a pet - A fish named Fenway Parker, a dog, Piper, and will soon own a Golden Retriever who will be named Lambeau!

Knew you wanted to be a reporter when - I was 13 and realized I would never play sports professionally.

Best movie of all time - Forrest Gump

Hardest part of my job - My crazy hours

Favorite holiday - Christmas

School fight song - You can't go wrong with any college fight song

People are surprised when I tell them - I took drum lessons from Eric Clapton's old drummer (Jamie Oldaker) and I used to live in Boston when I was little.

I like to listen to - Any type of rock music or sports talk.

Favorite Book - Of Mice and Men

I'd jump at the chance to - do voice-over work in a cartoon or host a game show. Both of those things would be amazing to do.

Best part of the day - when the day is done and we've had three successful sportscasts.

Favorite place to be other than home & work - At any family member's house or hanging out with friends.

Anything else you want viewers to know about you - I'm a ridiculously large sports fan, my TV is always on ESPN and my favorite professional sports teams are the Packers, Celtics, Red Sox and Bruins!
