I joined the WDAY 6 news team in September of 2013 as a weekend anchor and reporter. Previous to arriving in the F-M area, I worked as a broadcast journalist at the CBS affiliate (KTVQ) in Billings, Montana (sidenote: my hometown). I have worn many hats in my young broadcast career as an anchor, reporter, producer, sports producer and online producer. However, my favorite role to play is storyteller (collective: "ahh"). When not bringing you the 5 o'clock news with Robin, the Sunday 5:30 and 10 with Amy-- or reporting on WDAY 6 News at 6, I enjoy taking in or participating in sports. On the professional level, I root for Seattle teams. As a graduate of the University of Montana, I also enjoys FCS football (but forgive my allegiance). I also enjoy reading, watching movies, listening to good music and frolicking in the outdoors. I enjoy those things all the more when I can do them with my wife, Annie (a Minnesota native). If you have a story idea for me, or just want to say hello, you can send me an email!
