Okay, so there is an “I” in I-Team. But don’t be fooled. There’s a lot more team than meets the eye. There is, of course, my co-investigator Meghan Dwyer. Our producers, Steve Davis and LeeAnn Watson. Our extraordinary editor, Dave Michuda. And some of the best photojournalists in the business.

As for the “I” – Well, I was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri (Pattonville High School). I got my bachelors degree from the University of Missouri School of Journalism. And I’ve worked in both radio and television in Missouri, Iowa, and Wisconsin.

I love snow skiing, soccer, Texas Hold ‘Em, the St. Louis Cardinals, and ice cold beer (not necessarily in that order).

I have a passion for my work. But there is no greater joy in my life than being a dad.

    FOX6 gets results! Officials take big step toward protecting customers from predatory towing practices
