I enjoy creating videos that not only inform but entertain. I have a heart for Africa, namely Tanzania, and enjoy learning about different cultures.

I joined FOX 4 in 2003 as a Creative Services Producer. In 2007 I joined FOX 4's Internet Department where I write stories for the web and produce videos. I feel fortunate to have a job where I can not only work, but play on the Internet.

When not pecking away at the keyboard you'll find me studying Swahili or outside swimming, hiking, biking, running and exploring the great outdoors.
