I grew up in West Michigan, attending Belding High School. I attended Central Michigan University with a major in Broadcast and Cinematic Arts. I worked for a year at WSYM in Lansing and joined FOX 17 in August of 2006 with the addition of the FOX 17 morning news.
I currently live in Greenville with my wife Kara and sons Carter and Easton. I enjoy covering sports in West Michigan, especially at the high school level.
In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family and playing golf.
