Curiosity is the engine that has driven my personal and professional identity for the better part of my life. For me, the field of journalism is a sanctuary for that curiosity, and a place to explore it while serving others.
Prior to joining WYMT, I reported for a television station in Nairobi, Kenya, during the country’s 2013 presidential election. During that time, I filmed a documentary with the National Museum of Kenya on a nearly extinct ethnic community in east Africa.
I have a Master’s of Science in Journalism from the Medill School at Northwestern University, with an emphasis on broadcast media and videography .
Before becoming a journalist, I was a practicing entertainment and media attorney, with my own firm in Royal Oak, Michigan. My interest in American jurisprudence serves me every day as a reporter, and I continue to be an active member of the State bar of Michigan.
I studied law at the City University of New York and philosophy at Syracuse University, where I earned a Juris Doctorate and a Bachelor of Arts, respectively. I’ll admit to being a bit of a nerd when it comes to philosophy, but examining questions concerning our very existence has always been a source of wonderment and fascination.
I was born and raised near Detroit, Michigan. Having also lived and worked across the United States and overseas, I have learned to appreciate the vast diversity of our world and see beauty everywhere I go.
It is my honor to serve as a reporter for WYMT. Eastern Kentucky is an area rich in stories, with a culture and attitude that makes me proud to live here.
