How many years have you worked at the Sparks?
8 Years
Current Role?
Public Address
What do you enjoy most about your current role?
It’s such an honor to be the announcer for a professional sports team in Los Angeles. And then you add in the fact that the team has won a championship while I was announcing. There are very few announcers who can say that.
What is the most challenging when it comes to your role?
For me, the challenge is not so much in my role as it is in knowing that there are empty seats in the arena simply because the ball is being dribbled, passed or shot by a woman.
What advice would you give those trying to be where you are at in sports?
READ, READ, READ. READ a lot, READ aloud and READ with a smile on your face. Do your best to be clear, concise and correct. Volunteer to announce for a local high school, college, community rec league, etc.
