I love what I do, love working at FOX 4 because I’m interested in people and their stories. I especially love stories that show the human spirit– our kindness, survival skills, determination and stubbornness– all the things that motivate us and make us unique and exceptional.

I have two adult daughters. They keep me young and make me old at the same time. It’s also interesting– and sometimes frustrating– to see life through their eyes (and their Gen-Y/Millennial perspectives!)

Much has changed since I took my first television journalism job many years ago. But it’s still about you– the reader, the viewer– and telling stories that matter and supplying you with an assortment of news that you need to hear, that you’ll find interesting or compelling.

Thanks for coming to Come back often.
