"(S)he who asks questions cannot avoid the answers." ~~African Proverb

I'm an "A-block" Multimedia Journalist who regularly leads the newscast. I shoot, report, write, edit & produce content for all platforms including tv, radio & digital. My work has earned me a NY Emmy, a CINE Golden Eagle, a Humane Society Genesis Award & several Mid-Atlantic & Suncoast Emmy nominations, respectively.

I have appeared on TV One Fatal Attraction, Oxygen Snapped and Discovery ID Grave Mysteries to discuss my news reports.

I work as a Reporter & Multimedia Journalist for the CBS affiliate in Cleveland, Ohio. My beat is general assignment and I covered the Cleveland Cavaliers' historic championship, the Republican National Convention, the 2016 Presidential election in the "Buckeye" state and the 2016 World Series.

Previously, I worked @ the CBS affiliate in Wichita, KS: chasing storms, digging dirt & scooping stories. I became known for my "good gets," scoring exclusive interviews in some of the biggest stories to hit the Sunflower state.

In 2010 I launched GTN News @ the CBS affiliate in Gainesville, FL. I served as Managing Editor & Reporter, covering North Central FL. GTN received a Suncoast Emmy nomination for News Excellence the first year of starting news.

In 2008 I was NJ Correspondent for MTV News' Choose or Lose team: 1 of 51 journalists covering the US presidential election. I blogged, vlogged, tweeted & produced content for all of MTV's platforms from right out of my backpack. The initiative earned my team a Community Service Campaign Emmy from the National Academy of Arts & Sciences.

In 2005 I shot a half-hour documentary, Liberian Democracy: A Journey Back Home, that aired on PBS stations across the US. The film chronicled my experiences of meeting my relatives for the first time & coverage of the historic presidential election of Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf, the first female head of state in Africa. It is easily the most significant piece I've worked on in my short career for one reason: bridging both my personal & professional lives.

I hold a B.A. Journalism from Indiana University & and a M.S Journalism from Columbia University.

I am an active member of #NABJ.

I have worked for PBS, NPR & CBS affiliates in NJ, NY, FL, KS, & OH and MTV News in NYC.
