Graduated Bridgewater State University in 2015 with a Communications Degree in Media Technology. I work in the news room with Taylor Cormier and Tim Weisberg, bringing you everything happening in New Bedford and the south coast. You can also catch me on the air hourly on Sunday mornings as I update you on what's breaking in the area. I first gained interest in working in radio during my final semester at BSU where I got the opportunity to intern for WEEI's Dennis & Callahan Show, my favorite show at the time. Ever since then I've worked in radio in a number of different roles, which has led me to a job I thoroughly enjoy, here at WBSM.
