Before I arrived in Alaska a friend told me it was like my home state of Colorado “on steroids.” After I saw Glacier Bay from the air on my flight in, that proved true before I even touched down at the airport.
My time in Alaska has been wonderfully unpredictable. Every day I am exposed to a new facet of the unique Alaska lifestyle. I look forward to many adventures to come in the Last Frontier.
My parents are largely responsible for my fascination with TV news. Growing up, we watched the local news each night and “60 Minutes” every Sunday. I developed a passion for storytelling — a craft I try to hone each day working at KTVA.
I spent four years in Los Angeles, where I attended the University of Southern California. As a multimedia journalist at our campus station, ATVN, I learned how to shoot, write and edit my stories.
I covered anything from wildfires to car chases.
My other journalism work includes internships at CNN International in New York, KTTV in Los Angeles and The Japan Times in Tokyo. I was also half of a two-person team that filmed a documentary in Tijuana, Mexico.
Since I was raised in Denver, I am happy to be back in a place where people appreciate the outdoors. You can find me hiking in the summer, skiing in the winter and rooting for the USC Trojans all year long.
