Born in New Jersey. Grew up in New Hampshire.  I attended Lyndon State College and graduated with a B.S. in Television Broadcast Design and Production degree.


My first stop was at WMUR-TV in Manchester, NH, where I spent 3 years covering local news, sports and weather, including the 2008 Presidential Primary.


After WMUR, my career led me to WPRI-TV in Providence, RI where I spent just over 2 years covering Rhode Island’s biggest news events from the Historic Flood of 2010 to the death of Senator Edward Kennedy.  I also covered numerous snow storms and other local news events.


In Oct. 2010, I made the move to WFMZ-TV, based out of the Reading, PA office.  I was once again covering the areas biggest stories and local news events.  


June 2015 rolled around and I made the jump just over the county line to WGAL-TV in Lancaster, PA, where I work the early morning shift.  My days are filled with multiple liveshots and breaking news coverage.


In 2014 I was honored to be nominated by the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences -

Mid-Atlantic Chapter for Best News Photography.


Please take some time and view my demo reel and some of the more recent stories I have worked on.
