Digital savvy multi-media producer.

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.

    There’s nothing like a little friendly trash talk between opposing teams that makes a game fun. So when the Kansas City Police Department engaged in some smack talk with the Baltimore Police Department before — and during — Game 1 of the ALCS on Twitter, Royals fans started cheering. (Let’s face it,  there wasn’t a lot to cheer about while watching the game for those who bleed blue). See some of the witty remarks made between the police departments below. […]

With one handy cameraman the guys produced a flawless lip-synced rendition of the song in one take. With each transition, the guys keep viewers on the edge of their seats, wondering ‘What are they going to do next!?’ If there were ever a video you wished […]

    Cave Bouldering Gym opens in Kansas City, climbers rejoice

    KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Rome wasn’t built in a day, but a new bouldering gym in midtown Kansas City was constructed in just two months. And the mastermind behind it, Elsa Bleeker, said she couldn’t have done it without an amazing group volunteers. “Without the volunteers, this wouldn’t have happened,” she said. “It would have been me and this ugly, dirty space that I had.” Bleeker, a world traveler and adventure enthusiast, said she got bored last fall and decided […]
