News Philosophy

Give every story you do 110 percent.

There’s always someone out there who has a story to be told, they’re just waiting for us to find it and tell it. Accurately and honestly.

Hobbies, Interests & Community Involvement

Since I moved to SWFL my hobbies have mainly consisted of relaxing by the pool/ beach when I am not working!


I studied at Villanova University. I majored in Communications with a specialization in Journalism. While I attended school there I did over 5 internships at various news stations in the North East.
