I’m the Executive Producer of Interactive Content in St. Louis Missouri for KTVI and KPLR television. Our social media and web content at both TV stations is the focus of my day. If you’re having a problem with the website I can help you find a story, fix a typo or get you in contact with our assignment desk.

I’ve worn a lot of hats in my career producing material both for on-air and online. During high school I started working at KFXB-TV in Dubuque Iowa as a production assistant. After attending Webster University I landed a job at WRSP/WCCU In Springfield Illinois. Then, I made the move to a larger market at WSTR in Cincinnati, Ohio.

In 2006 I was able to move back to St. Louis to work at KPLR in the promotions department. I made Emmy nominated campaigns. Eventually I found my niche as the head of KPLR’s web department.

The merger with KTVI meant a lot more newscasts to produce for the web. Experience and experimenting with web content makes my days fly by. We throw a lot of spaghetti at the wall. Sometimes something sticks and goes viral. I enjoy touching so many people’s lives through their phones, tablets, browsers and televisions. Now, I lead the team at one of the top websites in St. Louis.

Please follow me on Facebook or Twitter to get an insider’s view into a newsroom.
