Birthplace: Baton Rouge, LA

Arrived in Baton Rouge: December 2008 after a stint in Grand Junction, CO at KKCO-TV.  I'm SO happy to be back in Baton Rouge for obvious reasons.

Education: Elementary School at St. Lukes Episcopal; High School at Parkview Baptist; B.A. in Broadcasting and Electronic Media, and minor in Meteorology from the University of Oklahoma

Awards / Accomplishments: Working on the awards!  Was part of best college newscast (OU Nightly) in the state of Oklahoma.

Family Info: I recently got married in December '11 to the love of my life Shanna.  My Mother and Father live in Baton Rouge; Grandmother in Melville, LA; Brother and Sister-in-Law live in Los Angeles, CA; I have a cocker spaniel rescued from a shelter named Wally.

Community Involvement: Have volunteered for Meals on Wheels in the past, been a mentor for the senior year project for Livingston Parish High Schools, also enjoy speaking to kids at local schools about weather and the news business in general.

Hobbies: I love watching and cheering on my Oklahoma Sooners in any sport.  Big Saints fan and have always been an LSU women's basketball fan, maybe because my dad used to coach middle school girls basketball.  I enjoy playing golf and tennis.
