Born and raised in Erie, I’m just a hometown kid who is committed to informing the community I grew up in.

I graduated from Cathedral Prep before heading off to Penn State Behrend. I graduated from Behrend in 2014 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in communication and a minor in advertising.

I joined the news team in February 2015 as a producer. However, my goal was always to become a reporter and in six short months that dream became a reality. In July 2015 I was moved from the producer desk out into the field as a reporter/multimedia journalist.

When I’m not writing stories I’m usually outside enjoying the sunshine, or making the best of the long winters skiing at Peek n’ Peak Resort!
