Milestones

My road in life took a while to figure out.
I grew up in a family with fostered and adopted kids. As a kid, I was always a bit of a performer.
I took broadcast journalism in high school—for me, that’s really where it all started.
I was offered a few scholarships to ASU and that sealed the deal: I knew I wanted to be a Sun Devil.
While studying at the journalism school, I was encouraged to take a variety of internships.
I found a passion for broadcasting and focused on that; by the time I graduated, I had a job offer.
I’ve been in the business for over 30 years now; in that time, I’ve lucky enough to win 16 Emmys.
In my free time, I’ve taken up mentoring and have been working with young adults in the area.

Skills & Qualities Beyond School

Part of broadcast journalism is that it’s pretty much guaranteed that you’re going to have to move to a small town and work strange hours when you’re first starting out. Personally, I started out in San Angelo, Texas, where I knew no one, and I worked from 2 p.m. to 2 a.m. So if you don’t want to move away from family, or miss holidays, or work those strange hours, this might not be the job for you. But as long as you’re passionate about this, it gets easier as you go on.

Advice for Getting Started

Here's the first step for college students

You want to get a broadcast journalism degree because that will you give you the opportunity to use quality, professional equipment—that’s going to set you apart. We’re in the age when anyone can pick up their camera and tell a story: the citizen journalist is out there. Now will you get paid to do it? That depends on if you can set yourself apart and tell these stories in a creative way.
