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.

Webster University in St. Louis is my alma mater. I've worn a lot of hats in my career producing material both for on-air and online. I started working in television at KFXB-TV in Dubuque Iowa. In Springfield Illinois at WRSP/WCCU I made commercials, promos and the website. In Cincinnati Ohio at WSTR I worked as a producer. The move back to St. Louis meant working as a promotions producer for KPLR and eventually as the web team leader for KTVI.

Now, I live in South City and own a small art gallery and studio.
