I’m a native of Seattle and a UW grad. I got my start in journalism as a DJ at a tiny Auburn AM radio station. The highlight of my overnight shift — and one of the few things that helped keep me awake — was presenting three minutes of AP wire stories at the top of every hour. I realized I was a news junkie and went back to college to get a broadcast journalism degree. Since then I’ve worked at half a dozen TV stations in Seattle, Spokane and Yakima.

If you’ve got any story ideas or news tips send them along to and I’ll look into them.
