I am thrilled to be back in the Bay Area! I am an Orinda native and CAL grad that spent 27 years back east as both a Sports and News Anchor. I have been known to shout out a “Go Bears” while on the air. It’s in my DNA. My first sports job was in Eureka, CA, and that was followed by stops in Manchester, NH, Boston, Detroit and back to Boston before finally coming home in 2011 to anchor mornings at KPIX. 5 years later I landed at KTVU anchoring weekend mornings and could not be happier. I have covered Super Bowls, Stanley Cups, watched the Red Sox break the curse, and some guy named Brady win a few SB’s. I jumped to news in 2001 and reported Live from 9-11, a number of NH Primaries, the passing of Senator Ted Kennedy, and now countless events here in the Bay Area. I love telling a good story, and so enjoy meeting different news-makers every day. I am indeed a lucky man because I am doing what I love.
