He attended Arizona State University and earned a bachelor’s degree in Broadcast Journalism through the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication.

When not at work, Jeff enjoys running, collecting vinyl records, riding his motorcycle, watching all kinds of sports, playing drums, and whipping up new food recipes he’s attempting to conquer.
