My Mission

I firmly believe that our first duty as Americans and people of the world is to remember the sacrifices of others. Sports broadcasting gave me my voice. Now, I’m using that voice and all of the skills that I have learned to honor the heroes of history. By eternalizing the stories of these individuals, I hope that I can remind everyone why we should never take anything in this life for granted. As time goes on, this website will serve as a resource for all generations to understand why we must always honor the ultimate symbols of our freedom.

Battle of Long Island

The Battle of Long Island, also known as the Battle of Brooklyn, was the first major battle of the Revolutionary War since the Continental Congress formally adopted the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776. Although American independence had been declared, it still remained to be secured on the battlefield. As the war moved to New York, General George Washington and his amateur army were confronted by the largest expeditionary force of the eighteenth century. On August 27, British and Hessian forces under General William Howe attacked American forces stationed on the western end of Long Island, in present-day Brooklyn, and skillfully defeated Washington’s army. While Washington had be

Never, Ever, Ring the Bell! Life Lessons From a Navy Seal

“If you want to change your life and maybe the world-start off by making your bed!” As Admiral William H. McRaven suggests, starting your day with a simple task such as making your bed can give you the lift you need to start your day and provide you with the satisfaction to end it right. In his thirty-seven years as a Navy Seal, Admiral McRaven learned many lessons about dealing with life’s challenges. In his fantastic book, Make Your Bed: Little Things That Can Change Your Life . . . And Maybe the World, McRaven provides ten lessons that he learned from Navy Seal training, which have a universal appeal and can help all of us as we navigate life’s difficulties. I believe that three of his le

Battle of Mobile Bay

On August 5, 1864, Union Rear Admiral David Glasgow Farragut led his flotilla past the Confederate defenses at Mobile, Alabama. Once into the bay, Farragut’s force engaged in a bloody firefight with a small Confederate fleet led by the formidable ironclad CSS Tennessee. The Union navy eventually sank or captured two smaller ships and damaged the Tennessee so badly that she surrendered. Over the next two and one-half weeks, the Union ships, with the assistance of army troops, forced the surrender of all three of Mobile’s forts and gained control of the bay. By sealing one of the last major Southern ports, another Confederate gate to the outside world had been nailed shut. The Battle of Mobile

National Book Lovers Day 2018

Today is National Book Lovers Day, a day for all those who love to read. So far this year, I've finished 27 fantastic books and there are many more that I'm extremely eager to crack open. In the spirit of the day, here are three of my favorite books that I've read this year and that I highly recommended to all. 1. Julius Caesar by Philip Freeman “Veni. Vidi. Vici.” I came. I saw. I conquered. As a brilliant orator, an accomplished writer, a skilled politician, a military mastermind, and more, there were few things in life that Gaius Julius Caesar did not conquer. More than two thousand years after his death, Caesar still remains one of history’s greatest figures. Phillip Freeman’s incredible

 

SERVICE THROUGH SKILL

I will use my skills to help anyone that I can. No one will be forgotten and no place is out of reach. 

HISTORIAN

From a very young age I have understood that my place in this world is the result of sacrifices made by others. My passion for Military history helped to fuel that belief and has been a constant in my life ever since. .

SPORTS BROADCASTER

I have been fortunate enough to have worked for the New York Giants, Madison Square Garden, & ESPN Radio Albany. I have hosted my own sports talk show called, The Sports Vault for over 5 years. These experiences continue to enhance my creative capabilities. 

PUBLIC SPEAKER

Nothing brings me more joy than sharing my mission with others. Whether it's in front of a camera, microphone, or classroom, I am open to every form of communication. .
