Okay, so there is an "I" in I-Team. But don't be fooled. There's more team than meets the eye. There is my producer, Steve Davis; 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.

    “I’m doing it for the children:” State Rep. to introduce pair of “co-sleeping” bills in January

    MILWAUKEE (WITI) — A four-month-old baby dies in northwest Milwaukee, and early indications are that the infant was co-sleeping with his mother. Details are limited until an autopsy is complete, but a FOX6 investigation recently dug deep into the issue of babies dying in unsafe sleeping situations. Experts say putting your baby to sleep safely is as simple as knowing your ABCs. Babies should be alone, on their back, and in a crib. “No pillows or blankets or other soft […]

    School district spends staggering $167K in lawsuit; Should taxpayers pay attorney fees?

    FREDONIA (WITI) — A small town school board blows six figures on a simple lawsuit. Now, a judge has to decide whether taxpayers should pay the other guy’s attorney fees. Mom always said “money doesn’t grow on trees,” so when school officials in the small town of Fredonia let a garden-variety lawsuit grow out of control, it was taxpayers like Carol Murphy who had to foot the bill. “They should just drop it. You know, it doesn’t make sense,” Murphy […]

    FREDONIA  (WITI) — Down the drain.

    Police tracking cell phones a violation of privacy? Wisconsin Supreme Court says “no”

    MADISON (WITI) — The Wisconsin Supreme Court sides with police in a pair of cases that involve government tracking of a suspect’s cell phone — but the court’s Chief Justice disagrees with the ruling — calling it a violation of privacy. The decision could impact everyone who carries a mobile phone. If you have a cell phone, you are literally carrying a real-time tracking device everywhere you go. But should police be able to use that information to track down suspected […]

    Backlog at state lab leaves drug-impaired drivers on the road

    BROWN DEER (WITI) — It’s no secret that Wisconsin has a serious problem with drunk driving. But a FOX6 Investigation finds a dramatic increase in drivers suspected of being on drugs. And that’s causing a dangerous backlog in drug testing. It could be that more drivers are getting high on pills or illegal street drugs, like heroin. Or, it could just be that cops are getting better at detecting it. Either way, the backlog in drug testing is putting justice […]
