Hi folks. Thanks for checking in on our website. You clicked on my picture so I guess you want to know more about me. Well here goes.

I was born in Dallas and lived there until I was 5. My family then moved to Mesquite, a town I still consider home. I graduated from North Mesquite High School and went on to get a BS in Broadcast Journalism from TCU .

College was great but then reality hit.... I had to get a job! KLTV was the first station I sent a "tape" to and I was lucky enough to get an interview. Well that was more than a year ago and after a stint as producer of our morning show, "East Texas News Daybreak", I'm doing what I've always wanted to do.

Depending on who you ask, reporting is in my blood. I think it's a natural curiosity, but my friends and family might tell you all my questions are just annoying. Either way I love meeting people and I love telling their stories.

There are not many jobs where you get to do something different everyday. Well, reporting is not really different, but the people and places are and the stories they tell always seem new.

Growing up in Mesquite and going to TCU it was only natural that I made my way East. I love East Texas and wouldn't dream of starting my career anywhere else. It's not just the lakes and golf courses that make this place special for me, it's the people. And I love hearing from you.

If you have a story idea or just want to say hi, give me a call or drop me an email. Thanks for watching KLTV 7 News. Hopefully I'll see you around.
