Professional experience: Graphic designer/video producer in the financial industry. Hosted an NC State-centric podcast (The Riddick and Reynolds podcast) for five years from 2011-16.
Education: NC State, 2001. BA in English with a concentration in journalism-ish-ness.
Hometown: Gray's Creek, NC
Playing days: Peaked as a pitcher in Little League. Struck out a bunch of dudes who were convinced I was an easy pitcher to hit. Also, had a great hit on a teammate one time in practice while playing middle linebacker for my Pee Wee football team. In other words, yeah, I've put my hand in the dirt.
Most memorable moment in sports history: As a student journalist, I got to cover NC State's win against Florida State in 1998 that began a run of above-our-station-in-life success against the Seminoles that persists to this day.
Favorite sports venue: I'm biased, but there's no better place to watch a college football game than Carter-Finley on a Thursday night.
If I wasn’t working in sports I would be: Well, since I merely cover sports on the side, I'd probably still be doing my day job.
