I was born and raised in the great city of Fort Lauderdale. It was a lot of fun growing up 15 minutes away from the beach.
A couple months after finishing graduate school, I started my career as a reporter at WCTV in Tallahassee.
I reported there for almost two and a half years, 10 News and First Coast News in Jacksonville took me on as their state capital reporter, also based in Tallahassee.
After covering state lawmakers in Tallahassee, I joined the 10 News team in Tampa Bay. As a USF alum, it feels good to be back in the area. When I'm not reporting - you'll find me at the Bulls games, at the Bucs games, or relaxing on Clearwater Beach.
In my spare time, I like to catch up on television, watch movies, hang out with friends, read a little bit, walk my dog and enjoy nature every once in a while.
Tampa Bay is a place for growth and opportunity where you have endless choices for food, fun and entertainment. Even though I'm not living in the area, I enjoyed my time there as a USF Bull and now I'm honored to work for a station serving that area.
