I joined FOX43 Morning News in July 2012. Every morning I’ll be hitting the road and finding cool and fun things you can do in the area.

Prior to joining the FOX43 team, I was a traffic reporter for 6 different radio stations in the Harrisburg, York and Lancaster areas, where I learned from the best in the area and is happy to bring his talents to FOX43 Morning News Team!

Originally from Washington, D.C., I grew up in the Maryland area, and moved to Central PA in 1995 to pursue a career in radio, just like my godfather. I have worked as an intern at local radio stations in Harrisburg, and was an On-Air Personality within a year! I started doing traffic back in 2006 with Clear Channel/Total Traffic and loved every day talking with people about the roadways. I took a break from traffic in 2011 to work with CBS 21 News as an assignment editor, but was excited when I was called to bring my traffic expertise to FOX43, and join a great morning team!

In addition to reporting the traffic, I spend my time on the weekends as a DJ for Mixed Up Productions and Events By Garrett Inc, providing musical entertainment for weddings and parties, which adds to my love of all things music.
