I joined the WPMT FOX43 news team in August of 2014 as a general assignment reporter.
I’m a proud New Yorker, Brooklyn born and raised. I started my television career behind the camera, field producing and working the assignment desk at NY1 News in New York. I then worked at other major news desks in the Big Apple like Network News Service, CBS and FOX News; coordinating international and national news.
I started my reporting career in the Middle East, in Lebanon working as a print reporter. Later when I returned to New York, I worked as a television reporter for News 12 Westchester. I’ve also proudly worked as an in-game Scoreboard host for the NY Yankees.
I graduated from Brooklyn College with a B.S. in Broadcast Journalism with a concentration in History.
I love the New York Yankees, coffee and chocolate. I enjoy spending time with my family, pilates, reading and going to the beach.
