Hello, Everyone!

I was born in Fargo, ND, and when I was 14 our family moved to Melbourne Beach, FL.

I attended the University of Florida College of Journalism and Communications, and in between classes worked at the Independent Florida Alligator newspaper, WRUF-AM and WTLV-TV.

After I graduated I went to work at WTLV, in Jacksonville, FL, and a few years later I moved to Atlanta and 11Alive.

So I love the snow, the beach, the north Georgia mountains, Piedmont Park, and whenever I can - never often enough - exploring the world, near and far. And I'd love to hear from you.
