They say those who wish to sing always find a song. I'm looking forward to "finding my pitch" in the television business at KMOT-TV in the Magic City.

They say those who wish to sing always find a song. I'm looking forward to "finding my pitch" in the television business at KMOT-TV in the Magic City.

I come to Minot all the way from Milwaukee, Wisconsin. I'll admit I was a little sad to leave the Badger State, but I've already met some great people here in the Peace Garden State….and I think I'm prepared for the snow.

I graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2011 with a degree from the School of Journalism and Mass Communication as well as a double-major in English.

During college I had the opportunity to report on Wisconsin Badgers sports as an intern for SportsRadio 1250 WSSP, based out of Milwaukee. I also interned at Madison Area Technical College, where I interviewed students and wrote bios for the school's alumni website. And throughout college I wrote for almost every page of one of our student newspapers, The Daily Cardinal. You name it, I covered it—from rallies at the Capitol in Madison, to a deployment of Wisconsin troops to Iraq, to UW softball, to local theater, to famed astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson visiting my dorm.

After graduation I interned at Today's TMJ4, the NBC affiliate in Milwaukee, where I learned from some of the best on how to create compelling stories. While at TMJ4 I also interned at Time Warner Cable Sports 32 in Milwaukee, assisting in production of their sports talk shows.

I was an avid choral singer in college, and while interning in Milwaukee, I joined the Bel Canto Chorus, one of the oldest community choirs in Wisconsin. The group was honored to have our Christmas concerts broadcast on Wisconsin Public Television.
