About Me

Broadcast Engineering & Technology

I am currently employed by NBC10 Philadelphia (WCAU-TV) as a digital operations center technician. My responsibilities include overseeing and troubleshooting all inbound microwave, satellite, and IP feeds as well as ingesting local programming and station promos into our playout servers.

Previously, I was employed by MLB Advanced Media (MLBAM), now BAMTech, as a broadcast engineer. I worked in the transmission operations center (TOC), handling all partner events & linear streams. My responsibilities included provisioning, routing, and monitoring multiple A/V feeds to and from our facility, as well as analyzing and rectifying technical faults with our inbound or outbound A/V feeds.

Prior to that, I interned in the Engineering department at SportsNet New York (SNY) where I was responsible for the daily engineering needs for repairs, upgrades, and expansion. I was also involved with wiring and installing newly purchased production and post-production equipment, and routing inbound & outbound signals to & from our broadcast facility.


Television & Film Production

Video and film production is another strong suit of mine. I have held numerous freelance jobs as a camera operator and video editor. I have also worked on many independent television and film projects.
