I started at 9 &10 news as an intern in June of 2002. Shortly after that I became part of the news team as a full time Photojournalist. Since then I have enjoyed meeting all of the unique people and experiences Northern Michigan has to offer. The thing I have always loved about being a photojournalist is the unexpectedness that each day sends our way. I grew up in McBain so I enjoy working in an area that's familiar to me, and where it's not unusual to see family or friends I've known all my life. I attended Ferris State University for four years and have a degree in Television and Digital Media Production.
In my spare time, I enjoy playing volleyball, softball and basketball as well as camping. I enjoy watching birds in my yard, watching my cat Slash enjoy the birds in my yard, and working in my flower gardens.
