I am an award-winning sportswriter at the Las Vegas Review-Journal, and was the point person for this year’s coverage of Las Vegas-area athletes competing in the Olympics. Among my responsibilities was the coverage of the four Las Vegas swimmers who competed for the U.S. (one won gold, two won silver and the other finished fourth).
I would love to share those stories with you.
My editors have indicated I also will lead our local Olympics coverage heading into Paris in 2024, and we expect at least three Las Vegas swimmers to be strong contenders to qualify.
Most of my career has been dedicated to covering college athletics, and in 2016, I became President of the 1,300-member Football Writers Association of America. But I am versatile and have experience covering a wide range of sports, and absolutely loved writing about swimming at this year's Olympics.
Two of my passions are sports and global travel, and it would be an absolute dream to be part of Team USA as it prepares for next year's World Championships in Japan.
As far back as I can remember I have always had a passion for developing relationships within communities. I feel that my next step would to be to continue as the Director of Aquatics/Head Coach. This position would allow me to share my passion of aquatics with all the community. I am prepared to perform all the duties and responsibilities that the position requires with diligence and integrity to provide the community best experience possible.
For the last 20 years I have also been running a private swim club of over 175 members that has a yearly revenue of over $400,000. I feel that with my 30 years of experience, which includes coaching high school swimming, football, and lacrosse along with college admissions, college coaching along my athletic advancement experience that I can carry out the demands of the Director of Aquatics/Head Coach position Development. Within a small business, I feel one of the major areas will be to think outside the box and find ways to build relationships within the area while building engagement with the community to improve all programs and funding of programs
