I fell in love with journalism at an early age. My very first “job” was as an un-paid freelance photographer for the weekly paper in my hometown. Shortly after signing up for my first journalism class in high school, I was hooked.
Though originally from California, I grew up in a small town in Kansas with a population of just over 4,000 people. After high school, I moved to Boston to study broadcast journalism with a concentration in art history at Boston University, and graduated in three years. In that time I worked for the New England Sports Network, BUTV10 and Travel Channel International. After graduating, I packed up my bags for Abilene, Texas, to work as a reporter for a year and a half.
Outside my love for hard news, I enjoy traveling (including two study aboard semesters in London), reading, trying new food and watching Boston and KU sports.
Working in Alaska is an exciting adventure and opportunity. As a travel-junkie, I’m thrilled to be able to explore what Alaska has to offer, both in news and in adventures.
