News Philosophy

Everyone has a story. Find it, tell it as truthfully as possible and leave people feeling like they have learned something from it.

Hobbies, Interests & Community Involvement

Writing! When I’m not writing news scripts I’m writing short stories, poetry and always journaling. I also play golf and am excited to play on Southwest Florida’s many golf courses.
