I’ve been with the Eyewitness News team since April 2013.

I was born in Tucson, Ariz., and grew up in Los Angeles. After taking a journalism writing course in high school, I quickly discovered a passion for journalism and writing. I followed that passion to Pepperdine University, graduating with a degree in broadcast journalism in April 2012.

While there, I spent a summer reporting for the Israel Broadcasting Authority in Jerusalem. I had the opportunity to rub shoulders with politicians and ambassadors such as Israeli Deputy Foreign Minister Daniel Ayalon, President Shimon Peres and former British PM Tony Blair, to name a few. It was fascinating to experience a different culture, while reporting in a foreign country over 7,000 miles from home.

I also spent time as an entertainment reporter in Los Angeles, interviewing such stars as Bradley Cooper and Quentin Tarantino.

Working in TV gives me the chance to get to know people from all different backgrounds, and share their stories with you, the viewers. Each person has such a unique story to tell. That’s why getting to know you is my favorite part of the job!

If you have any story ideas or feedback to share, feel free to send me an email. You can watch me on weeknights at 5, 6, 10 and 11 on Eyewitness News.
