Reporter and Weekend Weather Anchor

I was overjoyed to join the Eyewitness News team in 2008. I am happy to be back in the Valley. I was born and raised just up Highway 99 in Fresno. Currently I work as a Reporter and Weekend Weather Anchor.

After a successful football career in Fresno I went on to play at Chabot College in Hayward and Eastern Michigan University. While at EMU I interned at WDWB (WB20) in Detroit, MI. I began my professional broadcasting career working as a photographer for KSEE-TV in Fresno. I was later promoted to Weekend Weather Anchor. In 2006, I moved to the Midwest working as the Weekend Weather Anchor and Reporter for ONN (the Ohio News Network) and filled in for WBNS in Columbus Ohio. In my time there I covered many interesting stories, including covering Tornadoes, Ice Storms, and even a Blizzard. On the news side, I covered several major stories, including the 2007 Findlay Floods, and Governor Ted Strickland's Green Upgrade to the Governors Mansion.

When I'm not at work I enjoy going to church, sports events, traveling and working out at the gym. I am a member of the National Weather Association, American Meteorological Society, National Association of Black Journalists, and Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity Inc. I am currently studying Meteorology through Mississippi State University, with goals of attaining my AMS and NWA seals of approval.

You can watch my news reports weekdays at 5 and 6 p.m. and forecasting the weather on the weekends at 5, 6, 10 and 11. If you have a news story you want to tell me about, send me an e-mail using the link below.
