An Encinitas resident and San Diego native, this is home and I am humbled and honored to tell your stories.

I began my broadcast career a short while ago, still learning as I go, right here at FOX 5. I interned in everything from news to sales and of course, sports. After graduating from Point Loma Nazarene University, I traded in my surfboard for a snowboard and moved to Colorado Springs where I worked in both news and sports.

My journey has since brought me back to San Diego and I couldn’t be more excited.

In my free time, I like to surf, bike and cook. I also enjoy spending time with family, trying new restaurants and traveling.

Feel free to follow along and reach out with any story ideas or to simply say hello!
