Thanks for watching NewsChannel 12 and for visiting our website. So much has happened in Eastern North Carolina since I began anchoring the weeknight 6 and 11 o'clock newscasts. As our beautiful area grows, so does the great quality of life here.
Before coming to North Carolina in 1997, I worked in television news in Columbia and Kansas City, Missouri and in Buffalo, New York. I also worked in media relations in New York City. My media career actually began in my rural Missouri hometown, where my great-grandfather founded a weekly newspaper. I attended the University of Missouri at Columbia and the State University of New York at Buffalo.
I'm active in volunteer work with several projects and agencies. My wife Kathy is a wonderful companion, a life-long educator and National Board Certified teacher, and a terrific Italian cook!
We enjoy exercising, gardening, writing and playing with our two Yorkshire terriers, Scooter and Rocky. What a handful they are!
