I am a proud fan of the Dallas Mavericks and have been one since the late 1990s when I was a kid.
My story on becoming a Mavs fan is one I will remember for the rest of my life.
I was 6 years old and in first grade and I went to a Mavs game with my family at Reunion Arena. At the end of the 3rd quarter, I was invited onto the floor to play musical chairs with other kids who were the biggest Mavs fans of the night. I won a t-shirt, a Mavs basketball, and a ticket to a Rockets-Mavs game. I knew right then and there that I would be a Mavs fan for the rest of my life. It was incredible!
Im 25 years old. I was born in Dallas but lived most of my life on the east coast. I lived 9 years in West Hartford Connecticut and 4 years right outside of New York City when I was in college at Hofstra University where I graduated with a Bachelors Degree in Broadcast Journalism with a Minor in Political Science.
Although I lived most of my life on the east coast, my native Dallas routes never left me. Especially the native routes of the passion that I have for Dallas sports teams.
I have so much passion for Dallas sports teams that I knew from the young age of 12 years old that I wanted to go into sports broadcasting just so I could cover my favorite sports teams.
I love broadcasting because it gives me a platform to have a conversation!
