Hello everybody, I’m the latest in a growing line of Multimedia Journalists at FOX6. We’re basically jacks of all trades – we shoot, write, and edit the stories you see us report on the news. It’s a bit more work but I love recording video in the field knowing exactly how it will fit in my story.

I come to Milwaukee by way of WICD in Champaign, IL. That station has become a pipeline for FOX6 – I worked there with Bret Buganski, Ben Handelman and Brittney Sager. Once again, we’re together on weekends! At WICD, I was the Vermilion County Bureau Chief. I worked alone in our Danville office, about 45 minutes from the Champaign studio. Before leaving the station, I spent time in sports covering the Fighting Illini and the prep scene.

Before then, I worked at KOMU in Columbia, MO. That’s the station run by the University of Missouri. After graduating from Mizzou, I stuck around to do a variety of things. The spectrum ran from running live shots for other reporters to updating the website.

I grew up in Skokie, IL which borders Chicago to the north. My roots will make for the toughest adjustments here. I have to admit I’m a huge Bears and Cubs fan. Rest assured, it won’t affect my reporting...even if I’m sent up north to do a Packer story! Growing up in Chicago, I was a vendor at both Wrigley Field and U.S. Cellular Field. I knew then I was a sports nut since I was more interested in watching the game than selling hot dogs!

I look forward to telling the stories that matter in southeast Wisconsin. If you’ve got an idea for one of them, let me know about it on Facebook and/or Twitter!
