Hi all,

I'm coming to 23ABC after spending 5 years in Big Sky Country, working as the Sports Director and then as the Anchor of the 10 p.m. show at KTVH in Helena, Montana.

I grew up in Southern California, before heading to Arizona State to get my degree in Sports Journalism. I am elated to be living somewhere, where I can step outside in January and think, 'This is nice,' once again.

In my free time, I'm usually out on walks with my dog Cooper, playing video games, or coaching baseball.

If you see me around the neighborhood, feel free to stop over and say hi, or if you have a story idea, shoot me an email at
