Biography:
I suppose you could say my television career started as a contestant on The $25,000 Pyramid. I was in college, my partner was Gladys Knight, and no, I did not win (I blame Gladys). All these years later, I find myself in a real TV job with less money at stake, but just as much pressure and just as much fun. I never dreamed I would be getting up at 2:30am to go to work ... eating lunch by 9am. (Who knew fish or pasta would taste good at that hour?) I´ll admit it, it ain´t easy, but I´m willing to make some strange concessions to do a job I love. In real life, there´s nothing I love more than snow skiing. Movies, travel and live music are also at the top of my list. When Sting comes to town, you know where I´ll be. Through the years, I´ve gotten to interview some very interesting people...from Presidents Clinton and Bush...to Jennifer Lopez�even John Travolta. In this biz, you never know who you´ll meet next. I started at FOX 2 in 1996 as a general assignment reporter, then became co-anchor of FOX 2 News Weekend. I moved into the role of morning newscaster in 1998. Prior to St. Louis, I worked in Columbia, Missouri, Sioux Falls, South Dakota, and Tulsa, Oklahoma. I was born in Alabama, grew up in Missouri, earned a Bachelor´s Degree at Baylor University in Texas, and a Master´s Degree from Columbia University in New York. Out of all those places, St. Louis is my favorite. I´m happy to call this home. Thanks for watching, and if you see my old Pyramid episode on The Game Show Network, please change the channel!
