I’m a lifelong resident of the Show-Me State and couldn’t be more excited to make St. Louis my fifth move in Missouri.

I went to my first Cardinals game when I was six-weeks-old, and have always loved St. Louis’ history, sports, culture and food. I can’t wait to get out and see more of what this great city has to offer.

I got my start in the news business as a journalism student at the University of Missouri. There, I made several trips a week down to the Capitol in Jefferson City to cover my passion — government. I also got to cover some great sporting events, including a Tiger Cotton Bowl victory in 2014.

After school, I reported in Springfield, Mo., at KOLR-TV.

Journalism is a tremendous public service, and I’m grateful for the hundreds of amazing people I have met from all walks of life. I’m looking forward to meeting hundreds more!

The best story ideas come from folks just like you. So if you ever want to run anything by me, just drop me an email.
