CougCenter responsibilities include: Writing, with an emphasis on breaking down football schemes and finding interesting ways to look at data.

Born and raised in the Tri-Cities, Wash., I'm a current graduate student in environmental science at WSU Tri-Cities and researcher at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory.

A former high school quarterback, I like to bring the knowledge and insight I gained while playing the position and studying the game to my writing. I also apply techniques in data analysis I've learned professionally when the situation calls for it.
