With a broad range of experience in print, radio, and television journalism, I have developed a firm grasp on how to tell a story in the most entertaining and informative way possible. I have consistently delivered news, under deadline, while working in practically any environment. A self-starter and fast learner, I am a strong anchor, reporter, and writer with the tools to articulate my thoughts in a concise manner; My 2010 1st Place AP Award for reporting reflects these abilities. I am a former college athlete, which lends depth and experience to my viewpoint of sports.
