About Me

I am currently the Associate Director of Technical Operations at WFUV Radio. I began my career in broadcasting here at WFUV in 1996, while a student at Fordham University. After graduating from Fordham with a bachelor's degree in computer science, I worked briefly at ABC Radio Networks and ESPN.

In August, 1999, I returned to WFUV as the Assistant Director of Technical Operations. As Assistant Director of Technical Operations, I oversaw the day to day operations of the station, mixed live in-studio performances, coordinated remote broadcasts, and maintained studios, computers and broadcast equipment. To hear some of the performances I've mixed, visit the audio page.

In 2006, I was promoted to Associate Director of Technical Operations, the position I currently hold. I've left behind the day to day operations of the station, for a more project-based role. Some of the more recent projects I've been part of are the design and build of our live streaming network, the creation of 2 new digital multicast channels, and the rebuild and the redesign of our station's website, wfuv.org. Perhaps the biggest project I've been involved with occurred in the summer of 2005, when WFUV moved its facilities to a new location. I played an integral role in the design, planning and construction of these new facilities.

While audio/broadcast remains my main passion, I've expanded my interests to web design, videography, and photography. When I'm not working at WFUV, I can usually be found doing freelance web design. Check out some of my recent projects here. Over the past couple of years, WFUV has begun to video all of its live in-studio performances. I've started to get into the production end of things, both behind the camera and as an editor. You can see some of my recent work here. On weekends and vacations, I usually have a camera in my hand.
