    I joined the FOX 5 team in September of 2012 as the start of a budding news and weather team. Weather has been my passion from the age of 5 when I witnessed a tornado touch down not far from my home in Colorado Springs. Since then, I have always been fascinated with forecasting, weather patterns, and especially extreme weather, and understanding why it happens.

    I am originally from Iowa City, IA, but moved to Springfield chasing love. My girlfriend at the time, who is now my wife, is from here. As crazy as it sounds to me, I’ve now been here for eleven years. I graduated from the University of Iowa, and moved to New York after that to intern for the Late Show with David Letterman where I made copies, went on errands, and appeared in sketches, but mostly made copies and went on errands.

I was born and raised here in Springfield, Missouri and have always loved the Ozarks. In 2014 I graduated with a degree in Broadcast Journalism from Missouri State University, and started with Fox 5 KRBK as an overnight Master Control Operator. It wasn’t long before I was able to transition into the News Department, where I have been working full-time since 2015.

In my short time covering news in the Ozarks, I have been able to cover events ranging from the 2015 World Series in Kansas City, The Legends of Golf in Branson to the arrival of politicians from Bernie Sanders to Mike Pence.It is an honor to be able to cover stories that happen right here in the Ozarks, and to bring the news into the households of the great people that live here.

In my free time you can find me working on my golf game or playing men’s league baseball. I also enjoy the great outdoors, whether that means hiking, canoeing or camping, this area offers so many wonderful opportunities.
