I joined Q13 FOX News “This Morning” as the Quick Commute Traffic Anchor in 2003. Beforethat, I spent 10 years working in radio in the Seattle area and I still work in radio — you can catch me on various AM and FM stations around town.
In my spare time, I work as a film critic and composer — I’ve scored several independent film projects. Aside from that I’ve also been working on designing and building boutique tube guitar amps under the label of Emerald City Amplification.

I’m known around the newsroom for… Cranking the sweet rockin’ tunes that drive the ladies wild from my desktop speakers.

I give back to my community by…  Lending support to several local charities, including the March of Dimes, Seattle Humane Society and the M.S. Helping Hands.

My greatest TV momentBuilding a swamp cooler — MacGyver style — for less than $20 in an effort to show folks how to beat the heat for cheap, and it worked!
