My broadcast career began in radio in the 1980s in Orlando, Florida even before I graduated from the University of Central Florida. After a few years I made the jump to television at the CBS affiliate. I handled the weekend weather duties and reported on the people and places of Central Florida. In 1996, I made the move down I-4 to the ABC station in Tampa to continue bringing viewers award-winning reports from their neighborhood. Now I'm excited to do the same at WAAY 31 News here in Huntsville!
I admit, I'm a bit of a science nerd, so the Rocket City is right up my alley. Since I grew up and worked in Florida I've had a front row seat to watch the growing space program. In 1969, (I was six), my dad packed us up and we traveled from Ft. Lauderdale to Cocoa Beach to watch the Apollo 11 moon launch! Years later (1981) as a young adult I drove myself to the same place to watch the first space shuttle launch.
I couldn't be more thrilled to be living and working in the beautiful Tennessee valley. Huntsville is a growing, vibrant city and my wife and I can't wait to explore it and the surrounding areas. As a Florida native, it's great to be close to the mountains! We are looking forward to experiencing everything North Alabama has to offer.
