Where did you grow up?

Jacksonville, the First Coast of Florida.

Where did you attend college?

I graduated from Elon University in 2012. It's a small school in North Carolina.

Where have you worked previously?

Working here at Fox44 is my first job!

What is the most challenging story you've ever done?

I met an incredible group of ex-convicts who worked with a local organization in North Carolina to get their lives back on track and find jobs. Their stories were incredible and the man leading them was inspirational. After we thought the story was finished, the main ex-convict we followed decided to quit the group. I got to know him very well and still worry about his family and hope that he is doing alright.
