Position: Multimedia Journalist
When Started: July 2014
Other Positions Held Here: None
Where Else Worked:I started in visual storytelling at the Columbus Dispatch as a videographer and web producer in 2011. That September, I moved to Missouri to launch the Jefferson City bureau for KMIZ-TV (and ABC and Fox affiliate). I was promoted to weekend anchor and spent two years in that role before leaving in July 2014. School: Ohio University. E.W. Scripps School of Journalism. BSJ. 2011.
Most Proud-Work:It's humbling to see the work we do as journalists affect real change in our communities - from a simple community call to action, to changing the discourse and law. My first story at WCPO 9 was about a Westwood daycare that had all its field trip money stolen. The Tri-State stepped up an more than returned what was taken within days - incredible!
Most Proud-Life:This is home. I have family from Cincinnati up through my hometown of Beavercreek, near Dayton. I couldn't be happier to be back near family and within a two hour drive of so many of my closest friends!
Love Tri-State:There's something good happening in Cincinnati and it's great to be part of it. You can see and feel the pride here - who wouldn't love that? I'm enjoying my ongoing mission to explore all the distinct neighborhoods here. And I'm always looking for the next great grilled cheese.
Favorite Local Spots:Each neighborhood is unique. But I'm partial to OTR because I call it home. A warm, sunny day in Washington Park is perfect. Clifton's Gaslight and Covington's Mainstrasse are beautiful neighborhoods as well. This city's parks have stellar views and I'm still exploring them.
Favorites:TV Shows: Family Guy, Sherlock, Scandal, Revenge, House of Cards, Orange is the New Black, 60 Minutes, Breaking Bad, Scrubs
Movies: The Naked Gun, all Austin Powers, So I Married An Ax Murderer, Dear Zachary, White Christmas
Books: Detroit: An American Autopsy by Charlie LeDuff, anything by Mary Roach, Five Days at Memorial by Sheri Fink, Ishmael by Daniel Quinn
Apps: WCPO 9, Twitter, Facebook, Shazam, Pandora, Google Maps
