Connect With Me


Born in Nebraska to two members of the United States Air Force, I've already been blessed with many opportunities to see the world in my life.

I graduated from the University of Mary in 2017.

Even though I was not born in North Dakota, I've spent most my life here and call myself a North Dakotan.

I attended high school in Minot and see this state as my home.

I respect the kind and caring people, love the plains; and winter is still my favorite time of the year.

I love meeting new people and learning their stories.

I'm an Eagle Scout and endeavor to live those values and lessons in every aspect of my life. I'm still building experience and am ever grateful for the opportunity given to me by KFYR-TV.

I'm glad to get involved in the Bismarck-Mandan community by reporting, and enjoy discovering more about this state.

I broke into the industry during my junior year at UMary as a weekend reporter, and have since become a full-time multi-media journalist at the station.

When not at work, I fill my free time with books, board games and catching movies with friends.

My e-mail is: and if you have any story ideas I would love to hear them.
