I graduated from Steele and went to Ohio University where I majored in Journalism and minored in several things including Theater. I was really active in Theater there including running the student-run theater group Lost Flamingo Company and founding the improv group Black Sheep Inc. I graduated in 2006 after being named the Outstanding E.W. Scripps School of Journalism Senior in class of 2006.
I moved to NYC right after graduation to start a job with NBC's Page Program, which recently celebrated 80 years. I had several great assignments and then was hired full-time into the NBC News Specials unit and the NBC News Elections unit - both of which I still work in. My current job titles are Producer with the News Specials unit and Deputy Director of Elections.
I work primarily covering breaking news and big planned events. Over the years that has included events like the Royal Wedding, the Pope's Visit to the US, the Boston Bombing, numerous plane crashes, school shootings and terror attacks. It also includes politics - I've worked on multiple debates, conventions, Inaugurations and election nights. It never gets old!
