Sacramento is my home. Sure, I grew up in the Bay Area. But after graduating from Sac State with a degree in communications, I knew that I would be happy living and working in this city. That’s why, after a few years reporting in Eureka and Reno after college, I jumped at the chance to come home to the Sacramento region where many of my friends and relatives live. I’ve been a reporter in the Capital City since 2001, and at FOX40 since 2008. I enjoy meeting the great people of this region and visiting so many cities and communities on assignment.

On weekends you can catch me forecasting the weather on FOX40. My love of the outdoors and the science of weather (even those blustery Blue Canyon snowstorms) led to this position.

On my days off, I enjoy keeping up with my extended family and spending time in the company of good friends. I also get along quite well with my DVR and flat screen TV. When the weather is nice, you might see me running or trying to play golf. Trying. During the winter, I gladly trade in the golf clubs for my snowboard.
