Born & raised in Newark. Upon graduating high school, I worked at The Ohio State University Hospitals as a hospital aide in a Cardiac Stepdown Unit, transferred to Surgery, and finished my employment in The Surgical Intensive Care Unit. Left the hospital and started school at TOSU. Left The Ohio State after 2 years.
After leaving school, moved back to Newark and became a photographer at the newspaper where I became Photo Editor for 13 years. It was cool getting to shoot Ohio State football games home & away as well as covering the Blue Jackets, Browns, and NHRA Drag Racing. Moved to Vegas in 2005 and haven't been back there in 7 years. I never miss a game on tv and really don't miss Ohio except when I'm watching games and wishing I was there at the game.
