For more than two decades I have had a front-row seat to history and did my best to bring those experiences to our audience. I am currently the Los Angeles Radio Correspondent for Westwood One News. Thirteen years before that was spent covering major stories, some of the most important stories of our time, for CNN's radio division.
I have reported the events of 9-11 and from New Orleans during Hurricane Katrina and its aftermath. I have reported from the courtrooms of the Michael Jackson molestation trial, the Phil Spector and Robert Blake murder trials, OJ Simpson’s robbery trial in Las Vegas and many more high-profile cases. I’ve covered every Emmy, Grammy, Golden Globe and Academy Award show in the last 15 years; political conventions, debates, volcano eruptions, water wars and human interest stories.
From breaking news to long-form reporting, I have practiced the art of translating complex stories into the type of simplified personal tales that compels the listener.
Working in Los Angeles for KNX 1070 News Radio, I perfected the art of contextualizing stories on short deadlines. It was not unusual to have mere minutes to arrive on the scene of a major breaking news story and prepare for a live shot or Q&A with an anchor. That training was the backbone of my ability to do similar work for CNN’s national and international audiences.
Armed only with a microphone, recorder and laptop computer, I can work independently, enterprising reporting, self-editing and producing content ready for broadcast. I am also very good at working in a team environment and collaborating on story ideas and the stories themselves.
In the 13 years I worked with CNN Radio, I won 10 Golden Mic Awards for Best Reporting by a Radio Network from the Radio and Television News Association and two Peabody Awards. I also have a Golden Mic Award for my news coverage for Westwood One
