News Philosophy

Always state the facts. Be honest about what you know and don’t over exaggerate the truth. Never underestimate the power of good story-telling.

Hobbies and interest

I love to laugh and spend time with my friends and family. I enjoy staying active whether it’s in the gym or outdoors, but who doesn’t love a good Netflix binge day! My faith is important to me and I try to stay active in my local church and take part in community outreach.


Bachelors of Communication from FGCU

Like best about SWFL

I was born and raised here. It will always have a special place in my heart, and the sunshine and warm weather doesn’t hurt.
