I'm thrilled to call West Michigan home!

Growing up in Fort Wayne, Indiana I am no stranger to the Midwest.

I started my broadcasting career in Beckley, West Virginia where I told stories about coal mining. From there I went to South Bend, Indiana and covered stories on Notre Dame.

I graduated from Indiana University and am a die-hard Hoosier basketball fan. I also love the Indianapolis Colts and Indiana Pacers.

The best part of my job is how different each day is. During the week I'm out meeting fascinating people in West Michigan and telling their stories. On the weekends you can find me anchoring the 6:30 p.m. and 11 p.m. newscasts.

If you see me out and about please say hello!
