About

tom-1

I’m a passionate, award-winning Multi-Media Producer, Editor, and Reporter based in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, with a wide variety of practice in both the digital and print media industry available for freelance work and willing to travel.

My byline can be seen frequently at NBC Sports Philadelphia, where I’m a Reporter and Digital Content Producer covering Philadelphia professional and collegiate sports. At NBCSP, I’m credentialed to cover the Philadelphia Flyers and the National Hockey League. I write a weekly column highlighting the development of the Flyers’ top prospects while pitching in with game, practice and daily coverage. I also pitch in with breaking news coverage, college basketball and football, primarily Temple University.

As a proud graduate of Temple University’s journalism program, I fell in love with traditional and non-traditional storytelling packaged for the digital world. I worked at The Temple News as its web editor, while also assisting its coverage of Temple’s football and basketball teams, and covered religion for Philadelphia Neighborhoods, Temple’s capstone course. Throughout journalism school, I told some stories that I am proud of. There was the opportunity to profile the first openly gay Presbyterian pastor ordained in Philadelphia; a long-form profile of a small-town punk rocker who found creative freedom during the 1990s squatting scene in Philly; a recovering heroin addict opening up about their journey and what would have changed in their life had they knew about Prevention Point Philadelphia, a syringe-exchange program, earlier than they did; and how other religions viewed Pope Francis’ visit to Philadelphia in 2015.
