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.

Police need help after after late night gas station carjacking that took only 45 seconds

Police have released security footage of a late-night carjacking that happened in Plymouth on Sept. 28. The footage reveals a pretty clear depiction of suspects lying in wait in a silver Ford Taurus, waiting for the owner of another car to come out of a Valero gas station located at the 13500 Block of Plymouth Road. The carjacking happened at 2:55 a.m., when one suspect holds the victim at gunpoint, while another suspect robs them of their possessions. If anyone has information on these three, they're asked to call Crime Stoppers or Commerical Auto Theft.
