I have a foundation in journalism and most recently used those skills as a reporter for KGO-TV and the ABC7 News Team.  I blog regularly and read as much short-story fiction as time will allow.

I was Host of the summer reality show American Inventor on the ABC network; and in 2009 was chosen as talent for international airline carrier, Qantas.

In 2010 I was hired to host “The San Francisco Chronicle/ 53rd Annual International Auto Show.” I can also be seen in the Season 8 Premier of the Emmy Award Winning drama 24.

My Introduction to television has been anything but traditional.  While serving in the United States Army in Germany, I worked with a team to create training and support videos.  Upon completion of my service, I attended Santa Rosa Junior College where, through the guidance of three dynamic instructors, I discovered the world of Speech and Forensics.  My interest in debate would eventually lead me to the stage as both an actor and a public speaker.

I hold a baccalaureate degree from the University of California, Berkeley and attended Emerson College in Boston for my graduate work.  While working toward my Master’s degree, I worked as a photographer/truck operator for WPRI-TV in Providence, RI.  Upon completion of graduate school, I was hired as a General Assignment Reporter at WTVD-TV in Durham, NC.

Prior to my return to California, I was a field correspondent for ABC News One, providing complete, breaking news coverage of national events – mostly, hurricanes in Florida. Shortly thereafter, I was chosen to anchor the morning news at FOX-29 in Philadelphia and provide live coverage of special interest stories for a segment called “Nick in the Neighborhood.”

Appropriately, I have been a live reporter for the Army/Navy game, traditionally held in Philadelphia.  I have also worked as a reporter for E! Entertainment Television, and my live reports have appeared on FOX News Channel, the Weather Channel, World News Now, Live! With Regis & KellyWorld News Tonight with Peter Jennings and most recently, World News Tonight with David Muir.

I am a voracious reader, engaged voter and the proud descendant of Mississippi sharecroppers. I am the product of a single-parent home and hold strongly to the belief that service to our country and/or community should be required.
