After spending time in rainy Seattle, I am thrilled to be back on the east coast!

I'm a New Jersey native and graduate of the George Washington University where I studied International Affairs and Middle Eastern Politics.

Current affairs have always been my passion. I got an early start in the news world in junior high as an anchor for the "Glenfield Primetime" Morning News in Montclair.

That persistent news itch never went away, and after college I kicked off my journalism career at News12 New Jersey as an associate producer, learning the ins and outs of the business, and quickly moved into the producer chair.

After spending 2 years producing the evening news, I decided it was time to get out into the field! I spent a few years exploring East Tennessee as a multimedia journalist at WVLT in Knoxville. Then I took my talents out west to Seattle, reporting for KCPQ... and waiting for the sun to come out!

When I'm not working, I love playing soccer, hiking, reading, and of course, spending time on the beach!

I'm very excited to meet as many of you as I can. Please feel free to email me with story ideas, or just to say hello!
