  • BUSIEST DAY: June 9, 1995 - I gave a lecture in the morning, announced a New England Patriot's alumni softball game in the afternoon and went on stage in a lead role ("Run For Your Wife") that evening. I have also called four hockey games within 48 hours and three football games within 24 hours. With the Harlem Rockets we played three games on three South Atlantic islands in one day. In all of the events that I've broadcasted, I've served as producer and statistician. Many times reporters request my statistics as the official game record. On September 14th-16th, 2001 I announced five Harlem Rockets basketball games in 4 states in 48 hours. On September 21st-23rd, 2001 I announced a football, basketball, hockey and softball game within 48 hours. On April 21st, 2007, I had a lecture on the Great Brant Rock Fire in Marshfield, MA at 2:00 PM, I announced a New England Patriots' Celebrity Basketball game in Fiskedale, MA at 7:30 and went on the air with Spooky Southcoast Radio from Dover Massachusetts at 10:00 PM



  • TODAY: I work with the Boston Bruins Alumni and New England Patriots Alumni Club in addition to other pro organizations (MLB, NHL, NFL and NBA alumni, U.S. Olympians) as the public address announcer in hockey, football, basketball, comedy basketball, baseball and softball. I'm working the P.A. for the 18th season for the Eastern Football League's Randolph Oilers. I have a unique and exciting part-time job. I get to hang out with ex-pros and here their stories. With the Harlem Rockets, Court Jesters and Harlem Hoopsters, I have travelled all over America, the Middle East and the Caribbean including Kuwait, Curacao, Seba, St. Martin and St. Eustatius.
