It is a great honor and privilege to work in the Nation’s Capital.

I joined the DCW50 team from Greensboro, North Carolina where I worked for Fox8 News.

I covered everything from stories on the disproportionate number of black motorists being pulled over by police to ACC basketball tournaments.

I lived in Greensboro from 2014-2016.

Previously, I anchored 5 shows per week in Colorado for 10 years.

With a skeleton staff on the weekends, I was an assignment editor, producer, promotions writer and newsroom leader.

When we had major breaking news, like the Waldo Canyon Fire that destroyed more than 300 homes in Colorado Springs, I anchored three hours of consecutive coverage.

I have a proven ability to work under pressure with tight deadlines and turn in award-winning work.

One example is my work during Colorado Springs’ New Life Church shootings in 2007.

I was the lead reporter on a Best Evening Newscast award given by the Colorado Associated Press Broadcasters.

I’ve also covered major events like the Aurora Theater Shooting, high speed chases that have led the network newscasts and one time, while working my first job in Midland, Texas, I visited a Mexican jail for an interview with an American unfairly imprisoned for murder.

I’ve also been honored twice by Colorado AP Broadcasters in the sports category for Best Sports Special. Most recently I earned an Edward R. Murrow award for photography work on a series of stories by Tribune-owned WPIX entitled The Final Fight: The push for Jack Johnson’s pardon.

While in Texas, I cut my teeth shooting highlights of the infamous Odessa Permian Panthers, the team featured in Friday Night Lights.

I am a huge baseball fan and also love college football, Mexican food, going on adventures with my friends and visiting my family near Austin, Texas.

If you don’t get enough of me on the news there’s a chance you may run into me on the trails around the DMV, at a concert or at the library.
