About

Hi.   You’ve clicked the “about” link, so I shall waste the next several minutes of your time shamelessly bragging about myself.   I apologize.  Close this window if you don’t want any of this nonsense.

Here we go…..

Over the last 14 years, I have manged to survive in the television news business by holding various jobs that paid “bank” as they say.   “Bank” if you’re a high school student that didn’t have to pay rent.   Back when I was 18, I was happy with my $8 dollar an hour pay as a production assistant at KRNV-TV in Reno, Nevada.

I don’t know how it worked out this way, but while in college, I made less.   Somehow I lived on $5.15 an hour as an intern at KOBF-TV in Farmington.  I slept on the floor of a nasty apartment during that summer of ’98, but I had a blast at work  chasing criminal suspects with a news camera and actually appearing on air several times.

Today, I’m an investigative reporter for 9 News in Denver.  Before this job, I spent the past nine years at KOB-TV in Albuquerque as an anchor, reporter and investigative journalist.   Before that, I worked as a reporter for KTSM-TV in El Paso, Texas.

I’ve earned various awards for my investigative work, including a Rocky Mountain Emmy for Investigative Reporting.

So that’s my very brief history as a journalist.

Over the years I’ve learned the First Amendment is a powerful right that is not to be abused, but to be used properly to hold our government and elected officials accountable.  That’s what it’s there for and I use it even when people, especially those in power, don’t like it.

This blog will focus on my personal observations and anecdotes of the human conditions I encounter while news gathering.  Some of the posts may be funny.  Other posts may be serious.

If you have a question, ask!

Oh, I forgot to tell you something else really important about me.  I like chocolate cereal.   I was also in the movie Transformers for 1.5 seconds.  I’m also a HUGE Superman fan.
