I've been with The Defender since August 2019. I'm a long-time sportswriter who has covered everything from college sports to the Texans and Rockets during my 16 years of living in the Houston market. Before joining The Defender, I worked for the Houston Chronicle, AOL, Sports Radio 610, and NOLA.com. FUN FACT: When I'm not juggling assignments, I'm usually spending time with my two children, Amari and Nigel. One is four hours away in college, but that doesn't stop her from keeping me busy with the Daddy do's. My son is 14 and vacillates between an aspiring athlete and a drummer. Go figure. But I enjoy every minute and all of the quirks of being a girl and boy dad.
