Central Pennsylvania is where I grew up, attended college, and eventually returned to start a family. After working at several TV stations around the country I returned to Central Pennsylvania when FOX43 News debuted in 1994. I currently anchor the weekday 4pm, 5pm and 10pm newscasts. I graduated from Shippensburg University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Communications in 1985. My career included work at TV stations in West Virginia, Allentown Pennsylvania, West Palm Beach Florida, and St. Louis Missouri. Over the course of nearly 40 years, I’ve been fortunate to earn a number of journalism awards, including several Emmy awards and nominations. Shippensburg University’s Communications/Journalism Department also named me the Outstanding Alumnus Award for professional achievement.

Away from work, you’ll find me riding the roads and highways on my Harley-Davidson.  The Eagle Scout in me still comes through with my love of camping, backpacking and hiking. I also spend time hunting. 

I try give back to the community as much as possible through participation in many charitable events. I serve on a number executive boards including: The Executive Board of the New Birth of Freedom Council of the Boy Scouts of America; The Executive Board of America’s 9/11 Foundation; The advisory board of both Shippensburg University’s College of Arts and Sciences and Communications/Journalism Department.
