Hi there, I am the 5:30 p.m. & 6:30 p.m. anchor at FOX 2 News.
My career started at age 14 when I produced and hosted my own television program in Troy, Mich. In my first two years at Michigan State University I was on the air at the CBS & ABC stations in Lansing, Mich.
I was then hired to anchor the news in Flint, Mich. where I did news and weather for four years. That was followed by seven years at NBC in New Orleans. I loved the people there. I couldn’t stand the weather. Heat and humidity are not my thing. After 24 hurricanes including Katrina, I moved to Detroit in ‘09 where an economic storm was brewing. I am an ardent believer in the city’s future.
I have been sent to cover many high profile stories including the Republican National Convention in 2016, the Democratic debates in Detroit in 2019 and the Las Vegas mass shootings where we found local connections to that dark day in October of 2017.
After years of covering the morning news, I am thrilled to be a part of the 6:30 p.m. news where we feature all good news.
I am also a public speaking coach and keynote speaker. At TEDxDetroit In 2019, I headlined with my talk highlighting the gifts of rejection.
I live with my wife, Julie, and our boxer pup Louise. In my spare time I enjoy cooking, traveling and reading. I hate wearing winter caps but I love a good baseball cap on the weekends as we hack around parks throughout the area. My parents live down the road and I am so happy they are able do watch me on TV every night. There’s nothing like coming home.
