School Closings
Here’s how you can help those affected by the California wildfires

I’ve been slingin’ in the news game for 19 years. I interned with FOX43 and started working part-time studio crew while still in college. I was heavy into the sports scene in the early years, shooting local high school, college and professional sports, local racing and travelling to shoot stories on Indy car racing, NASCAR, Phillies and Orioles baseball, Penn State and NFL Football, even some Bowl games and Super Bowl XXXV, and helping produce the weekly Sunday Sports Live for a few years.

I switched to the news side almost 10 years ago and currently run the Assignment Desk. I’ve always been into news, and my job is the best fit for me- I’m nosy by nature and I get to boss people around!

It means a lot to me to be plugged in and doing this job where I was raised in Central PA. I graduated from Eastern York High School and York College, and except for my stint in the Army between high school and college, have lived my whole life right here in Pennsylvania Dutch Country. My family has deep roots here.

I enjoy the outdoors and coach baseball and soccer in my (increasingly sparse) free time.
