    How did a college 🏀 hopeful who could draw become a broadcaster instead? Thanks to my lively middle school drama teacher and some great campus marketing at Auburn's WEGL-FM...that's how! 

    Nine cities and close to 30 stations later, the joy of my job still is being apart of and serving my community. Now back on-air for weekends at Warm 106.9FM...overnights on Movin' 92.5...and assisting 98.9 The Bull!


    I love being back home and broadcasting in the Pacific Northwest. On-air, on-line, and in-person!

    ???                      🥅 3rd Annual PNW Draft 🏒 Tournament Weekend @ ???

    I found my 💗 of broadcasting in college, but fell harder for live events when I was in Las Vegas. For me, nothing beats being in public to connect with the community through fun, organized events! Currently I'm a part of Hubbard Seattle Broadcasting with Warm 106.9 and 98.9 The Bull and Movin' 92.5 📻

    Pre-pandemic, I helped host the WHL Challenge Cup and the Great Puckaroo Roundup tournaments. In 2021, I started the Annual PNW Draft adult hockey weekend every April. This Fall, I'm back as the Game Operations Manager for the Seattle Totems in the USPHL while announcing for Seattle University Athletics!

    From Olympic hospitality rooms and Super Bowl afterparties to charity events and golf-cart tours, let my experience help make your next event unforgettable...

    I grew up ⛸️ing in Northern California, but my mom's hope was to raise a figure skater! Later living in the Dirty South with little ice available, I saw Felix Potvin's flashy glove saves on ESPN National Hockey Night. In high school I just knew I was going to play hockey someday. And I did for the first time in the Winter of 2000 with some used Garth Snow leg pads.

    In 2004, I played in my first tournament on my first ever trip to Vegas! (having to find extra players for my team at a local practice) Shortly after becoming the adult league assistant for my rink in Denver, I started announcing for Colorado State Club Hockey and coaching young goalies. After announcing for the ECHL's Las Vegas Wranglers, I game hosted for the WHL's Silvertips & Thunderbirds as well as the AHL's Milwaukee Admirals. 

    Recently I play goalie all over the Seattle area, serve as the game operations manager for the Seattle Totems Hockey Club, write for Pacific Northwest Sports, and host for the Annual PNW Draft adult hockey weekend every April. I ❤️ this game.

    SEPT 2006 at Kauai's Poipu Bay

    As a little boy, my Grandpa Ritter taught me to love the game of golf...even if I was forced to watch it on 📺 EVERY Sunday! From those early days in the Bay every corner of the country...and now back in the Pacific Northwest, I've played over 160 courses in 17 states and provinces across North America and Hawaii. I'm not a PGA-Certified instructor, but have given golf lessons for the past 15 years to beginners and intermediate players of all ages. Let's go play!

    Phil Mickelson's big win on NewsNation ⬆️

    When I was little, I used to read every highway sign on long 🛣️ trips. After my older brother introduced me to a map book, the car was much quieter and my love of travel grew!

    I've been to every US state besides Alaska, with overseas trips to China & Japan so far. One of my best friends describe me as "the chamber of commerce for everywhere" because I've lived in 12 different states and provinces. I take after famous explorer Rick Steves, seeking out the most local hot spots and economical travel plans. And India is next in my sights...

    Zoom in and check out my favorite spots on the map for your future adventure! Purple colored for experiences, red for food, orange for shopping, yellow for scenery, black for lodging, brown for nightlife, grey for drives, green for golf, dark blue for ice rinks and light blue for ski hills!
