Thanks for dropping by. I’ve spent nearly 20 years working my way through the ranks of TV news operations, from dragging cable through the Capitol to anchoring newscasts in Oregon.
I am currently in Southern Oregon working as an evening anchor at the CBS affiliate KTVL. All of our newscasts are streamed live on our site http://www.KTVL.com. You can also follow us on twitter through http://www.twitter.com/KTVL and on Facebook at http://on.fb.me/fkJdMU.
You’ll notice links at the top of this site to my résumé and various video clips of my work in Broadcast TV news. The Commercial Video link has a video from the KENDA Pro Cycling p/b GEARGRINDER training camp and a mock PSA I wrote, shot and edited in one day.
I took a break from TV news and moved into the cycling industry, working for the UCI pro team KENDA Pro Cycling p/b GEARGRINDER and as a Branding and Promotions for wheel maker Mercury Cycling.
In my previous TV news job I was the Morning and Noon Anchor at CBS affiliate KAUZ TV/DT. Before moving to Wichita Falls I worked at KJRH, the NBC affiliate in Tulsa, where I was a reporter and filled in on the anchor desk. While there I covered major flooding in Coffeyville, Kansas, it was one story that continues to remind me how quickly things can turn dangerous and how crucial support organizations like the American Red Cross are to the public.
Before I moved to Green Country, I was a reporter at KLFY, the CBS affiliate in Lafayette, Louisiana. While in Acadiana I met some very interesting folks and was able to experience a culture unlike anything I’d known previously. Oddly, I left there just one day before Hurricane Katrina slammed into the area.
I also worked at WXII in Winston-Salem, KCEN in Waco, a production house in Sacramento, and The Washington Bureau in Washington, DC. I’ve labored in just about every position in the newsroom, from editor to producer to reporter and most recently as an anchor.
Before moving into the news business full-time I served in the United States Air Force, and deployed to the Persian Gulf Region twice in the 1990’s. While stationed at Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland I worked part time on Capitol Hill at The Washington Bureau and studied at the University of Maryland, University College.
I want to sincerely thank you for taking the time to view my website. If you have any questions, comments or concerns please contact me via phone, email or twitter.
