I joined the Eyewitness News team as a reporter in 2006. You can catch my reports throughout the day starting on Eyewitness News Daybreak at 5:00 a.m.

I'm a California native but this isn't my first time in Florida. I was a reporter for the ABC affiliate in Fort Myers for almost three years. I came to WFTV from my job as a reporter in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

In my free time, I like to hang out with my wife Beth and our dog Piper.

On the job, I want to keep people informed about issues that impact their lives and I enjoy telling stories that are just interesting for viewers to watch.
