As a Bellevue native, I love being back in the Pacific Northwest reporting on the community I love!

I joined the talented news team here at Q13 FOX in 2011.
I’ve worked all over the country, most recently anchoring for WHDH in Boston. Before that I spent time as an anchor and reporter at WPLG in Miami, WBAL in Baltimore, KIVI in Boise, and KHQA in Quincy, Illinois.

I take pride in covering our community and the people who make it so special. That’s why I created a franchise called Changemakers, highlighting the remarkable people who live here and dedicate endless hours to making this a better place. As a Seahawks fan, it’s also incredibly rewarding to share stories about your favorite Seahawks players off the field. Their passions, journeys to the NFL, and commitments to support our communities.

As a proud University of Washington alum, my Saturdays are spent cheering on the Huskies. Sundays are dedicated to the Seahawks. I’m still waiting for the day my beloved Sonics return to town.

When I’m not at the station, I love to host events for nonprofits, making our community even stronger. I’m also passionate about skiing and spending time with my wife and two young children. My son has physical and intellectual disabilities. Because of that, I feel it’s important to advocate for those with disabilities, both on the air and in life.
