After spending a few years in Virginia and West Virginia, my adventures in TV news have brought me to Pennsylvania. It’s been an exciting ride already, so I can’t wait to see what happens next.

Why news?
It’s hard to beat a job where every day is different and often unpredictable. It’s great to talk to so many different people in a given day and share their stories. The constant change definitely keeps things from getting boring!

My favorite things:
Watching TV (especially game shows), browsing through book stores, going to the movies. I really like to travel and want to make it to all 50 states eventually.

Something not everyone knows about me:
When I was a kid, I got a black belt in karate. But, that was a long time ago…

What keeps me going:

My favorite TV memory:
It’s actually not news-related at all. In the summer of 2011, I finally got the chance to fulfill a dream and go to a taping of The Price is Right. My family went with me to L.A. We got in line at four in the morning and had a great time. I didn’t get picked to play, but we sat next to Contestants Row and were on TV a lot!

TV moment I’d like to forget
While getting ready to go on air one night, the camera that was on me accidentally got punched up during the commercial break before the show. So, I was on air for a good 20 seconds or so just chatting with another guy in the studio. I’m very lucky I didn’t say anything I would regret.

If I had free time, I would…
Write a book, probably a thriller of some kind. It can be tough to find the exact kind of book you’re looking for sometimes. So, I figure maybe I should write that book one day.
