Hello and thanks for visiting my bio page.

Hopefully you're here because you want to send me a story idea. That would be wonderful. Finding stories is a constant challenge and the best ones come from folks like you emailing us rather than a press release about a ribbon cutting. So please, email me something now. And yes, you can remain confidential.

As for my story, I was born in Tulsa, went to Bishop Kelley High School, then to Boston College. I was a paralegal for a few years after college for my Uncle Dan. He's a fantastic lawyer, which made me realize I better find something I'm decent at doing because if I was to ever go up against someone like him I'd get clobbered. So I left, which was really tough because I had no idea what to do next. Plus, it upset my Italian grandmother.

So then I waited tables for a few years at an Italian restaurant while simultaneously doing a cable access show in Newton, Mass. Part of that show involved doing human interest stories. Eventually that led to working on Newton News, which I did for three years.

Lubbock, Texas was my next stop. Home of Buddy Holly, Texas Tech, Prairie Dogs and KCBD. I was there for two years and had a wonderful time.

I've been at Tulsa's Channel 8 since 2004 and won a couple of awards along the way, including second place at a cow chip throwing competition. I'm also proud to say that my Basset Hound, Daisy, won Most Patriotic News Dog for 2015.
