Thank you for welcoming me to Dallas! I guess you could say my broadcasting adventure began when I was in First Grade and my school principal asked me to read a poem I wrote over the P.A. system to the entire school! Well, now, here I am.
I’ve always been drawn to writing — be it short stories, poems, etc. I’m a musician who has been writing songs/lyrics since I was a teenager and, believe it or not, I still perform in a couple of bands!
I studied journalism at Appalachian State University in Boone, NC. I covered our school’s sports teams for the student-run newspaper (The Appalachian) and began writing for a newspaper (The Enquirer Journal) after college.
In an unusual twist, I was unexpectedly brought into the world of television journalism in 2013 at FOX 46 Charlotte. I love the way television broadcasting allows viewers to see, hear and feel what the subjects are saying. Sometimes, it’s better for us, as journalists, to say less — and let you, the viewer, do the talking.
At FOX 46 I won an Emmy Award for Journalistic Enterprise. I won Reporter of the Year and Multimedia Journalist of the Year by the Radio and Television Digital News Association of the Carolinas (RTDNAC) as well as a number of other awards.
I’ve had a number of stories lead to legislative action. It’s always a good feeling to know that your platform is powerful enough to make a difference.
As much as I love news, I have plenty of hobbies outside of it. Music, basketball, snowboarding, running, cooking, exploring, etc. I’ve always been one of those people who gets along with everyone and has an eclectic set of interests and friends.
As a journalist, I believe that’s important — to cast a wide net — because we’re always running into all sorts of stories and people.
It’s a blessing to be in Dallas. I love the city. It seems like there’s always something to do and the restaurant scene is fantastic.
I’ll be around. Please, say hello!
