I've been with the Eyewitness News team since August 2014, and I've loved it every step of the way.

You'll usually find me telling stories at the top of the 5:00 newscast. I report on a lot of breaking news and tough stories like crime in Kern County, but I also love when I'm able to make a difference in somebody else's life just by telling their side of things.

One of my favorite pieces in my time at Eyewitness News is a story that allowed us to advocate for a Tehachapi veteran not receiving the benefits he deserved. Once we stepped in, the VA stepped up. That story was nominated for a regional Emmy award.

I was raised in Orange County, but previously I spent time in Palm Springs with KESQ News Channel 3 and CBS Local 2. After working in the desert, the hot summers here in Bakersfield... really don't seem that hot. Some days it got up to 121 degrees in the Coachella Valley.

I graduated magna cum laude from Chapman University in three years with a degree in television and broadcast journalism.

When I'm not out in the field, you'll probably find me trying out a new restaurant or doing something outdoors.

I'm a proud Eagle Scout, as well as a long-suffering Philadelphia Eagles fan... and I'm sure we have no plans to win a Super Bowl any time soon. Yeah, I'm one of "those" Philly fans. I boo pretty loud. I also root for the Anaheim Ducks and Philadelphia Phillies.

I'm excited to be able to stay in California and work in Bakersfield, close to my family and loved ones.

Don't hesitate to try to contact me,
