I was born in Henderson, Texas, but I've also lived in Ohio, North Carolina, New Jersey, Florida, Alabama, Louisiana, and now Tennessee.


  • Bachelor of Arts in broadcast journalism, with a minor in art, from Northwestern State University in Natchitoches, Louisiana.

Previous Media Experience:

  • WAFF-TV in Huntsville, AL, KTRE-TV in Lufkin, TX
  • KPLC-TV in Lake Charles, LA.

Personal Information:

Eagle Scout with the Boy Scouts of America

Outside Interests/Hobbies:

In my spare time, I enjoy playing tennis, working out and traveling. My favorite movie is "Awakenings" with Robert De Niro and Robin Williams, and my favorite book is To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee. I'm an active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and served a 2-year mission for my church in New Jersey.

What You Enjoy About Local News:

I love seeing a smile on someone's face when you make a difference in their life. We have the opportunity to tell viewers' stories, and help them over come challenges they face. It's great to be part of the community in that way.

Media Awards and Honors:
