I started at 9&10 News in May of 2003 as a summer intern. After returning to Central Michigan University for my senior year, I stayed on during the weekends to help shoot football and basketball for 9&10 Sports. Upon my graduation in May 2004, I started right up with 9&10 on a full-time basis as a Sports Photojournalist before becoming a full-time News Photojournalist in the spring.
I have lived in Northern Michigan for almost my entire life. I graduated from Suttons Bay High School in 2000.
I am an avid sports fan. I follow baseball, hockey and football on a regular basis. And, I'm very excited about Traverse City having its own baseball team now with the Beach Bums in town. When I'm not watching sports, I enjoy reading, writing, playing video games, telling jokes, and listening to music.
