Like many, I moved to Alaska because of a job. Unlike many, my path to Alaska – and eventually Anchorage – started in the bush.

My first trip to Alaska came in 2011, when I landed in Dillingham with 2 suitcases and my dog, Amos. I spent 3 years as Program Director at KDLG Public Radio. It’s impossible to come up with enough positive adjectives to describe the people and places of Bristol Bay. Simply put: If you’ve never been, GO!

Prior to Dillingham, I spent a year in Israel, teaching English, seeing the sites and struggling to learn Hebrew.

Before living in Israel, I spent 6 years in downtown Chicago, where I attended Columbia College, played music and worked as a producer for CBS and Clear Channel radio stations.

My radio career began in Pontiac, Illinois at the age of 16. I hosted weekend shifts, spinning oldies and convincing myself that nobody could hear my voice crack on-air. (“Alright, up next is the Beatles, with A HAAAARd Days Night!”)

To my family’s dismay, I’ve fallen head over heels in love with Alaska. When the opportunity to help build KTVA’s web presence from the ground up came my way, I couldn’t say no. (Sorry, grandma.)

Alaskans deserve a fresh, new take on the news and events that matter to them.

I’m thrilled to be a part of the team that’s making it happen.
