Gene has been with the Times Free Press since July 2008. Prior to that, he spent three years covering sports for the Cleveland Daily Banner. He now covers the UTC men's basketball team, along with soccer and tennis at all levels, while being a member of the department's massive football coverage team. Gene spent three years playing college basketball, before playing a year of semi-pro before starting with the Banner in 2005. His passion is basketball, but he loves all sports of all kinds. He doesn't have college teams that he is a fan of, but prides himself on being knowledgeable about teams at all levels and doesn't limit himself by liking only certain sports. He does consider himself a fan of the Bulls (NBA), 49ers (NFL) and Cubs (MLB) at the professional level. Gene lives in Cleveland and has a 10-year old son, Judah.
