I’ve had my share of excitement and close calls covering both news & sports for FOX40 since 2003. Probably the most thrilling was covering the San Francisco Giants World Series run back in October 2010 and being in the clubhouse for the champagne celebration. By the way, that stuff really does sting when you get it in your eyes!

While I’ve spent the majority of my two decades in TV covering sports, it’s my transition to reporting and anchoring everyday news that I’m most proud of.

In fact, because of the relationship I have established with Sacramento’s Animal Shelter and all the stories I’ve done, I am known as the best Sports/Animal reporter this business has ever seen. My only question; is there any other Sports/Animal reporters even out there…anywhere?

My job has allowed me to be involved and to completely jump into a passion of mine…the sports world. But yet, when I leave FOX40 for my weekend, the games, the highlights, the personalities are left behind as well. I’m proud that this business doesn’t run my life.

I love living in this part of the country and enjoy an amazing relationship with a woman who shares many of the same dreams & desires that I do. I’ve got two daughters, a step-daughter and step-son. It makes for a lot of crazy, fun & incredible moments and I’m thrilled to be a part of it all.

  • Are Red Light Cameras Life Savers or Revenue Generators?

    CITRUS HEIGHTS — When the Citrus Heights City Council voted 4-1 in favor of expanding the city’s red light camera program last month, Councilman Bret Daniels got fed up. He says the system that has been in place since 2008 is more about money than prevention. “If you really want to do something to make things safer, get away from the revenue-gathering approach and actually get towards the behavior approach,” Daniels said. Daniels, who has a law enforcement background as […]
