Reporter

I was born, and raised, in Elgin, Illinois, where I graduated from Elgin High School.

I then attended Illinois Wesleyan University, before graduate school at Southern Illinois University. During my time in undergrad, I realized the power of television news, and determined this would be a good way to reach people, and help bring change for the better. I know, it's a vague ambition, but this is my goal in every situation.

I began my career in Madison, WI, as an anchor/reporter for WMTV NBC 15, and spent six years there. Madison is about as wonderful as billed, but the reason I moved to Milwaukee is even better ... I call her "My Jen," and she's my partner for life.

So, following her law school path to "The Mil," I began working at FOX6 in November 2005. I cannot put into words how much I have enjoyed working for the FOX6 Wake Up program, and meeting thousands along the way. But, new challenges await ... stay tuned.

Personally, I consider myself a pretty boring fella, and quite the family guy. I am happiest when My Jen and I are with my son, Jaedin, my little brother, my parents, and the rest of my wonderful family. It doesn't matter what we do, we're always just so happy to be together.

Over the years, I have developed a speaking program, which I have delivered to high school and middle school students, nationwide, in the hopes that my experiences and observations will help others. I also don't miss an opportunity to encourage folks to avoiding living superficial lives. In fact, I am guided by the idea that, whatever "it" is, "it's not about me." I try to apply this to every opportunity, in order to bring about the aforementioned "change for the better." I think it helps when I report, or anchor, to keep this in mind. The story, and being on television, is never about me. It's about helping to bring about the changes, and everyone benefiting from them.

My favorite quote: "Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, and today is a gift -- that's why they call it the 'present.'"

Thanks for reading.

God Bless You.
