Summary

My broadcast news career started in high school, when I spent a summer writing scripts for the evening news on KITV, the ABC affiliate in Honolulu.  Growing up in multi-cultural Hawaii and then spending the last 5 years in Boston and New York, I have a unique perspective on business, the media, entertainment, and pop culture.

I love storytelling, I’m a natural on camera, and I thrive in the fast-paced environment of a newsroom.

Objective

 My goal is to obtain an on-air news reporter and/or anchor position.
