Q: Why did you decide to pursue news as a career?
I wanted to go into Radio after interning at a local Country music station back home in Michigan.
Then after moving to Kentucky for college I got another radio job, but quickly got pulled into television while learning at the University of Kentucky.
I’ve loved it ever since.
Q: What was your first job?
Clearing tables at a local bowling alley.
Q: What is on your DVR? Once Upon a Time, Doctor Who, Flash, Arrow, Supergirl, iZombie, Legends of Tomorrow, The Vampire Diaries, The Originals, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, Law & Order SVU.. and dozens of other shows.
I work a lot… I’m usually at least a few weeks behind. J
