My life's work is dedicated entirely to writing stories about people in the community, yet the hardest part of my job is finding the right words to describe myself. It just feels a little uncomfortable is what I mean. But since you're here - which I REALLY appreciate - you obviously want to know a little about me, so I'm happy to oblige.
I've been with First Coast News since 2011. I moved here from South Carolina and have also worked in St. Louis and Atlanta. I went to University of South Carolina and studied broadcast journalism. I'm also a meteorologist here, and I got my education in weather from Mississippi State.
I love anchoring and doing the weather, but my passion is storytelling. The South Carolina and Florida AP has honored my work. I've also been nominated for and won regional Emmys for storytelling.
I've covered the Olympics, record breaking blizzards, hurricanes and the circus. And I still can't pick a favorite story I've ever done. My wife Annie and I are blessed with a beautiful son. His name is Oliver and he is my pride and joy.
Thanks for taking the time to read this.

I promise I'll do a better job writing your story than my own.
