Anchor/Reporter

I am a weekend anchor and weekday reporter at FOX 2 who is back working in my hometown.

It took 13 years of learning the ropes, but now I'm home doing what I love! As a reporter I arrived back in Detroit just in time to see a city in the middle of rebuilding itself. 

After growing up in Troy and attending MSU (Go Green!) I got my start in TV in Lansing. I then ventured out to horse country, spending sometime in Lexington, Ky. I realized that I was pure Michigan when I took a job that got me closer to home, working in Grand Rapids. 

Close was just not good enough for me so here I am back in the D.

If I'm not on air, chances are I'm sampling some of the best music Detroit has to offer having attended hundreds of live concerts over a lifetime. 

I love that my job takes me in different directions everyday and allows me to give people a voice they may not otherwise have. 

If it's important to you... It's news to me.

Drew Clayborn and his 'crew' help sort and recycle 40,000 cans

Drew Clayborn found himself in a similar situation as others during the pandemic - cancel his annual event or adapt. Facing challenges from a back injury for the last 10 years, he chose adapt. And he's doing it to the tune of Michigan's unlimited supply of returnables that haven't been recycled yet.
