When Vince’s journalism career began, his vision was broadcasting but writing became the path for his sports passion. The rest, as they say, is history.
Vince received his BA from the University of Nebraska in Broadcast Journalism but along the way gained experience as a writer for his college newspaper, the Daily Nebraskan.
For 19 years, he was blessed to have a career as a sports reporter, mainly for Napa Valley Publishing but also for GetLocalNews.com and Silver & Black Illustrated. The former was a startup online news service that no longer exists. The latter is a fan magazine for the Oakland Raiders.
In December 2014, Vince changed careers, becoming a delivery driver for Alhambra Water. However, writing remains his passion as he helps his former employer with high school football coverage and maintaining a blog.
Vince is quoted as saying, “I’m honored that Golden Shores Communications reached out to me to become a copywriter, it’s one that I don’t take lightly.”
